Thanks for your interest in Intel® Aero Platform.
I’ll try to answer your questions below:
You can use the Intel Aero Compute board in order to control your custom drone, it is a purpose-built, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developer kit powered by a quad-core Intel® Atom™ processor. It features abundant storage capabilities, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, support for multiple cameras including the Intel® RealSense™ camera (R200), industry standard interfaces, and reconfigurable I/O to facilitate connecting to a broad variety of drone hardware subsystems. The Compute Board ships with the open-source Yocto Linux* operating system, and offers sample applications and APIs for flight and vision interfaces, reducing hurdles for developers of sophisticated drone applications. For more details please look at this link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/aero/dev-kit, and this one: https://software.intel.com/en-us/realsense/aero for the Intel® Aero Ready-to-Fly Drone that could be of your interest. Moreover, if you are going to build your custom drone, so you should select the appropriate hardware to be able to carry an extra weight like 300gr.
Hope this information helps.
