UAVP-NG - The Next Generation Open Source Multicopter


Hi guys,

Just to keep you posted on the changes in the UAVP-NG project here's a summary on what happened in 2011:

For those of you, who do not know UAVP-NG here's a short introduction:

The UAVP-NG is a open source community project to build a modern autonomously flying Multicopter, started in 2007 as a successor for the old UAVP Quadrocopter.

UAVP-NG stands for Next Generation Universal Aerial Video Plattform. It is an effort by a group of enthusiasts to create an Open Source autonomous UAV for fun flying, photography and experimentation. It was born out of the old UAVP project, but by now it has technologically and administrativly nothing to do with its predecessor.

UAVP-NG has a lot of features, designs and frameworks you won't find in other multicopter projects. It runs NGOS - the NG operating system, our home brew multitasking copter operating system. It's open system and inovative frameworks allow non-programmer and programmers alike to extend and complete functions and features.

For more information check out the NG Forum, the Features list and the News page. Be sure to check out the UserCopters page as well, where you will find pictures and specifications of already airborne NGs. In the Download section you will find all NGOS software releases.

Be sure to read trough our Introduction to the NGOS, our Philosophy and our extensive Documentation also. Most of our developers and beta-testers can be found on the FreeNode IRC network on the channel #uavp at one time or another.

You can buy the needed PCB in our non-profit Shop on the website.

A small size comparision of HW-0.22 and HW-0.22-mini (all fully software & feature compatible), both part of the UAVP-NG hardware family running NGOS:

Have fun!
