The Next Generation OS Multicopter Project

UAVP-NG is a quadrocopter project. We develop our own flight controller (FC) PCBs and a operating system (NGOS) supporting multiple architectures that runs on them.


  • How high does it fly? How far does it go? The limiting factor is that you need to maintain visual contact (both for practical and legal reasons). Copters *could* fly much farther and much higher. For example, the radio systems typically have a range of ~1km, give or take (longer range versions are available).
  • How long does it fly? Depends on the copter and flying style, but typically 10-15 minutes.
  • How much does it cost? Depends, but if you start from scratch you'd probably need at the very least ~600€. Realistically, most people will spend much more than that.
  • How do you fly? Depends, but generally one stick controls throttle and yaw ("spin the copter") while the other one controls pitch/roll ("tilt the copter"). When you let go of the pitch/roll stick, the copter either evens itself out ("accelerometer mode") or maintains it's current orientation ("heading hold mode").
  • What sensors does it have? The only thing you need is a gyroscope. Our FCs also have an accelerometer, a barometer, a compass and GPS. Some of them even sport a secondary CPU. Extension ports for additional sensors are available. For example, we've experimented with infrared and ultra-sound distance sensors. (Feature list of our flight controllers:
  • What CPUs does it use? We support multiple different hardware architectures with NGOS, our own specialized multicopter Operating System. Our current hardware family supports LPC2148 and STM32F4 CPUs.
  • Can I try flying yours? Probably not. Quadcopters are expensive, building them takes a lot of time, and first time pilots are nearly guaranteed to crash them, so please understand if we're hesistant to let you have ours. We may however have smaller, cheaper, near-indestructible "toy" quadrocopters that we may or may not be willig to let you fly.

Current state

  • HW-0.24-mini is an LPC2148-based flight controller. It's been airborne since 29c3. This can be considered our "stable" version.
  • HW-0.30 is a major new version based on two (!) STM32F407 microcontrollers (one for the actual flight control, one for user applications) and a dualport RAM used for fast memory based communication between the two. The first prototype was tested during 30C3 and is airborne since January 2014. A second final version was produced in late 2014 and is available to our users now.
  • HW-0.30-mini is a downsized (to our smaller format of 55x55mm) version of the new HW-0.30, containing just one STM32F407 and no dualport RAM but otherwise having all of the same features. First prototypes were assembled and performed well. It's airborne since beginning of December 2014. A final version was produced in early 2015 and is available to our users now.

Hardware presentation

Since most of us will bring one or more of their Copters with them, we will have quite some hardware of different hardware revisions to show.
