You will have to use six ESCs.
Please read through docs.emlid.com and the docs on ardupilot.org.

Is Navio’s servo-rail suitable for 12V?

Please search the internet for how brushless motors work. The servo rail is only meant to be powered with 5V to drive RC servos.
Brushless motors need an Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) to work. The ESC gets the PWM signal from the Navio’s servo rail.
