For several reasons, we are not going the do this (not ourself I mean, anyone is free to adapt the design for his needs).
I could say that if you really want to do this, you can use the LED1 pad has match output and one of the AUX as GPIO. Or that you could do some dirty software to do this GPIOs.
But the main reason is that we (at least Michel and me) don't think that there is such thing like a Universal Autopilot that will fit everyone needs. Navgo is design for very small quadrotors with i2c ESC and limited payload.
We already have a lot of examples in the past of people asking for contradictory hardware design solutions. The best of all being the 2/4 layers PCB discussion.
So we want change the design unless it is needed for us, but other people are welcome to make a new revision of this board.
We will (already?) end up will a lot (to many?) HW, but at least we have solutions for almost any kind of aerial platform regarding their size and payload. And there is a lot of room for improvements. That is I think a better way to be "universal".

one question for the NAVGO v3,
is it possible to add  2 pins  SERV_RST (pin 48 ) SERV_CLK (pin29) to a connector or to make solder pads for it?
Then this nice autopilot is then able to fly normal wing configuration or multicopter with low cost motor controller (larger device > 40cm) with a separate servo connector  pcb shown in the appendix. This pcb is made to solder 2.54 mm connector strips direct for normal servo connectors.

Hello Sergey and other hw/sw developers,

When you have developed new hardware (autopilots, expansion boards, sensor boards...) or software (driver, new feature,...), do not hesitate to use this mailing list to announce it, send patches/links, or even better use the github pull request service. And of course, documentation on the wiki is always a good idea ;)

All this OSD discussion shows that people are making a lot of nice stuff around the Paparazzi project and that even more people want to use them! We are really willing to help more developers to share their amazing work and contribute to this project.

If you have any questions on how to contribute, have a look at this page: or contact us on this mailing list.

Happy hacking
