Using ath10k in ad-hoc mode

Dear all,

Recently I have bought some compex 802.11ac cards and I would like to 
communicate them creating a adhoc network. The initial setup would be to 
have three pc's in a "line" 1-2-3 and perform ping 1 to 3 passing 
through the 2 pc.

I have read in the mailing list that the adhoc mode is possible using 
the candela firmware, isn't it?
I am a newbie working with ath10k driver and, I would like to know if 
someone could help me or provide hints/material on how to configure 
these cards to work in the adhoc mode and making possible to ping 
between them.
I suppose this process would be done in two steps:
1)configure cards to work in adhoc mode.
2)configure routes and paths in the card.

I've trying to look for this in the mailing list but I have found 
confusing information, so any hint will be welcome.

Thank you very much for your time and attention,

With kind regards,
