Hello Soubhi,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel® Aero Compute Board.

 

 

As you probably noticed in this post https://communities.intel.com/message/470929# 470929 https://communities.intel.com/message/470929# 470929, Leonardo R mentions the following:

 

 

The Intel Aero Ready to Fly Drone comes with 4 motors and 4 ESCs, it might be possible to upgrade to 6 motors and 6 ESCs but this has not been validated. The RTF drone also comes with an Intel Aero Flight Controller with Dronecode* PX4* autopilot and it isn't possible to control the motor via S.Bus because s not enabled in the Intel Aero Platform.

 

 

And since the Intel Aero Ready to Fly uses the Intel Aero Compute Board, the previous also applies. So using a 6 motors frame hasn't been validated and it seems that using an 8 motors frame is not possible.

 

 

If you have any other question, don't hesitate to contact us.

 

 

Have a nice day.

 

 

Regards,

 

Andres V.
