    8 Motors frame

    Soubhi

      Hi

       

      I want it use Intel Aero board with 8 motors frame. Is that possible or shall I use Pixhawk and Aero as companion board?

       

      Thanks!

          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, 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.
