Emlid Edge support

I have recently seen a new interesting piece of hardware, the Emlid Edge “Advanced drone controller with
HDMI video input and 5.8 GHz data link” (link here: https://emlid.com/edge/).
Edge runs Ardupilot. So I wrote an email to their technical support in order to know if PX4 firmware can run on their hardware as well; they stated that they don’t support PX4 (however, it should also work).

Cross-compiling the firmware shouldn’t be very different from rebuilding it for Raspberry Pi 2/3 Boards NAVIO2 (it could even be exactly the same): it runs a Raspbian/Debian-based OS.
Has anybody already used PX4 on Edge? @LorenzMeier, is it possible to add a paragraph on the cross-compilation for Edge in the “Building PX4 Software” page (http://dev.px4.io/en/setup/building_px4.html)?

Thank you so much!

Should be possible to build on it - the first step would be to build for it like for the other Emlid boards: https://docs.px4.io/en/flight_controller/raspberry_pi_navio2.html

Let us know how it goes!
