With the development of science and technology, the control boards nowadays not only have a higher working clock rate but also supports multithreading. Like the effects of the multithreading processor with the development of computer sciences, control boards supporting multithread is promised to change the world of Unmanned Vehicles. This article focuses on the application of multithread for multi-rotors, a new section which has been recently researched by many universities and developers in the world. After an overview about multithread and the related projects, this article will present the utilization of multithread with FlyMaple, a new generation of control board which has some important advantages comparing to the older generations.
