Any plans for a Aero+Trinity kit?

Hi,

According to this post: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-aero-compute-board-and-intel-realsense-technology-fo... boardsetup RealSense - Intel® Aero Compute Board and Intel® RealSense™ Technology for Wi-Fi* Streaming of RGB Data | Intel® Softwar… , the ready-to-fly kit uses Aero+Asctec Trinity together for the flight control. This combination looks really attractive to me, and I was wondering if Intel has any plans to sell both sometime in the future. Currently only Aero is available, and there is no information at all on the Trinity module (I don't know if this one is the same with the one mentioned on AscTec's website).

In my opinion, the main unique part of the Intel Drone kit is just Aero+Trinity(AscTec technology)+Realsense. Other parts such as frame/ESC/motor/RC are not really special and can/should be replaced for specific applications of different users. So I would really like to see more information about the core components from Intel and how possibly they can stand out from similar products like those from Qualcomm and Nvidia.

Thanks,

Just wanted to ask the exact same question. I was also wondering how to buy a Trinity FC. As the benefit of the aero is a very small package, I do not want to connect an external PX4 based flight controller which need extra space, cables to connect it etc.

Hi guys,

 

 

Thank you for contacting us. I'm not aware of any plans to sell the Aero along with the Trinity module. We'll investigate about this and share our findings soon.

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

ok, so is it at least possible to buy the Trinitiy FC on it's own?

I guess not. Otherwise, Sergio should have already mentioned that. Aero is already available now and what's missing is exactly the Trinity FC. So I guess we will have to stop expecting for it in near future.

The Trinity FC is used in several Intel/Asctec UAVs, so I am pretty sure there must be a way to buy it - maybe as spare part.

Falcon 8+ uses Trinity. I tried to check on both Intel and AscTec's websites but couldn't find anything particularly about this FC board, except for some high-level descriptions such as triple redundant IMU.
