Gumstix announced an “AeroCore” MAV (micro air vehicle) controller board that runs NuttX on a Cortex-M4 MCU, plus Linux on a Cortex-A9-based DuoVero COM.

The AeroCore MAV control board is principally run by a separately available Yocto Linux-based DuoVero Zephyr or DuoVero Crystal computer-on-module (COM) that plugs into the board. The AeroCore itself includes an ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller unit (MCU), which is said to be directly interfaced with the DuoVero. The device is intended for developers of micro air vehicles such as tiny helicopters or quadrocopter drones.
