I haven't tested it on Yocto, but I installed Qt5 on Ubuntu.
Here is a guide on how to install Ubuntu on Aero:
Then you should follow these steps to install Qt5:
Let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you very much for your quick reply.
The setup for our existing drones uses Ubuntu, so this is an option we will strongly consider. Nevertheless, we are still hoping that we can use Yocto on the Intel Aero because it has better support for the various sensors on the drone.
If you prefer to use Yocto, you could build your own custom Yocto image. We haven't tested it, but if you try it, maybe you could share your results with the Community.

Thanks for the link. I think you are right that I will have to build a custom Yocto image.
I notice that Intel provides a Yocto layer to support Intel Aero (GitHub - intel-aero/meta-intel-aero: Yocto layer to support Intel Aero platform ). I have two questions about this:
1) Is this layer kept up-to-date?
2) Does Intel provide instructions for building it? Looking back in the forum, I see posts from early 2017 indicating that past users had to bitbake the Yocto image themselves, but I can no longer find any instructions about this available through Intel's documentation.
If I have the basic instructions for creating the Intel Aero image, I think it should be relatively straightforward to add the Qt5 layer. If I figure it out, I will be happy to share my results with the community.
Thank you again for your kind help!
I was able to find instructions for building the intel aero yocto image at the following link: 96 (References) Rebuild Yocto · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub
I will see if I can follow that and at Qt to a custom image.
