How many satellites can be used with Orbi Router (RBR850)

Question is about Orbi Router (RBR850), this model is not available to choose in the Model selector tool when submitting Discussion.

How many satellites can be used with this router.  What is the maximum number of satellites the Orbi Router (RBR850) can use?  I do see the bundled kits go as high as 3 satellites.  Can it connect to more than three?

First, there is a separate community forum for the AX product line:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi-AX/bd-p/en-home-orbi-ax 

 

Somebody who participates in that forum may have personal knowledge of how many satellites can be added.

 

Second, on the original Orbi, the web page for adding satellites has a maximum of three.  What people have done to get around this is to power off one of the original three satellites (and ignore the warning - satellite disappeared, do you want to delete it?) They then add the satellite and power that original satellite back on again.  People report having six satellites on one Orbi RBR50.

 

But... nobody has remarked in this forum about number of satellites on the AX product, or how they did it.
