Thank you so much for your interest in the InteI® Aero Compute Board, I would love to answer your questions:
1. Ubuntu is not supported with the Intel Aero Platform, as you can check in this thread: https://communities.intel.com/thread/107412, the costumer installed Ubuntu 16.04, but he had issues with the Wi-Fi.
2. Yes I think that you can use PX4, because the ready to fly drone has the flight controller pre-programmed with Dronecode PX4 software. (https://software.intel.com/en-us/realsense/aero).
3. At the moment it doesn't have any adapter or breakout board for his pins.
I hope you find this information helpful, and if you want to know more about the platform check this wiki: https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki
Have a nice day.
Thank you for your answer.
But I think second answer is not right.
The question was that Intel Aero Compute board has flight controller or not. It's not about Ready to fly drone.
I googled but I couldn't find any flight controller on Intel Aero Compute board.
And Ready to fly drone is integrated with Intel Aero Compute board, RealSense and Flight controller.
Please check it out again.

Yes, you are totally right, I completely misunderstood the question. So the correct answer for the second question is:
The InteI® Aero Compute Board isn't a flight controller, it will be used together with a flight controller. Anyways the latest release of its BSP includes PX4 packages such as pymavlink, so I think you can use PX4 in it.
About the I/O pins, well the box includes an expansion cable, but there isn't any adapter for ease of use yet.
Thank you for posting this information.
Thank every one for their answers and helps. I am looking forward for your instruction about connecting Aero board to flight controller (i.e. Pixhawk).
