Is there a reason for only 6 PWM I/O ports?

Best of luck Kirill, it looks really good, a smart, well thought-out flight controller. The videos look great too.

I do not get clearly from the video nor the web site if smartAP is just a hardware compatible with ardupilot firmware or if it has its own proprietary software?

I wonder why they didn't build in Osd on the board?

Hmmm, it's never good when they won't show their pricing.

Mike, 6 PWM inputs and 6 PWM outputs are enough for general applications. The main reason is the board compact design. 

Hugues, SmartAP has its own firmware, nothing in common with ardupilot. 

Don, OSD requires separated power supply on the board, this would have required more space and increased the price of the board. The estimated price will be around $250 after the alpha release.

Thanks for the update Krill.
