Welcome to the Next Generation Multicopter

What's the NG?

This is a open source community project to build a modern autonomously flying Multicopter.

New: 2.4GHz Diversity NG Video PCB boards available!

Attention

If you are planing to order the electronic parts, please look at the HW-0.22 Partlist quite often!
The parts, their availability and distributors may have beeen updated!

Nine HW-0.10 prototypes were flying in summer 2008. Since the 25c3 - The CCC Congress in Berlin twenty-five HW-0.20 prototypes were produced and were tested by our Beta-Testers. We received a lot of feedback and bug reports which we incooperated into the newer NGOS versions and into the next hardware revision called HW-0.21. Thirty final HW-0.21 prototypes were produced and tested in sommer 2009. We did small changes in the print and design and incoperated them into HW-0.22. HW-0.22 was produced in bigger quantity in preparation of the first public release. At the 26c3 - last years CCC Congress in Berlin - we did a first public hardware release of HW-0.22. The HW-0.22 PCB are now available in our Shop.

Note

This is a community development project and no nice and shiny finished product!

Please be aware that the NG Multikopter Project and the old UAVP Project are fully independant projects with different developers and different philosophy. The NG has a new, very different software and hardware design!

Having more and more vistors from China we would like make a political statement here:
Fight to free Tibet! 自由西藏! Free speech to everyone! Stop Internet censoring now!

We would also like to send our congratulations to Liu Xiaobo, a Chinese dissident who was sentenced to 11 years in prison in December for writing a manifesto calling for freedom of expression and multiparty elections, who won the Nobel Peace Prize Award 2010!

Highlights

Ygramul's NG FPV impressions on the 22.08.2010

Thrust/Weight is still at about 2/1. Used amir-ng controller and quadX hal.

For more information see my thread in the NG Forum.

Ygramul's dynamic NG FPV flight on the 22.08.2010

Try to fly my NG a little bit more dynamic with ACC mode. Unfourtanly my NG is also still to heavy for it's motor/prop combination. For more information see my thread in the NG Forum.

First GPS Position Hold flight on the 24.06.2010

This shows the very first GPS Position Hold flight of our new DCM based flight controller with Kalman Drift compensation in SO(3), the manifold of the special orthogonal group of rotations.

Servo Attitude Compensation Demonstration on the 16.11.2009

Here the two servos are attached to the RC-Controller which receives attitude information from the flight control by NGPP - The NG Peripherial Protocol.

NGPP is a register based access protocol allowing direct memory access on the slave device similar to MODBUS. The RC-Controller does attitude compensation on two defined servo outputs of the five available ones.


Example of a NGPP access from the NGOS:

# show ngpp rcctrl
