Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines is an exposition of models developed to assist in the motion control of various types of mini-aircraft: ac Planar Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft; ac helicopters; ac quadrotor mini-rotorcraft; ac other fixed-wing aircraft; ac blimps. For each of these it propounds: ac detailed models derived from Euler-Lagrange methods; ac appropriate nonlinear control strategies and convergence properties; ac real-time experimental comparisons of the performance of control algorithms; ac review of the principal sensors, on-board electronics, real-time architecture and communications systems for mini-flying machine control, including discussion of their performance; ac detailed explanation of the use of the Kalman filter to flying machine localization. To researchers and students in nonlinear control and its applications Modelling and Control of Mini-Flying Machines provides valuable insights to the application of real-time nonlinear techniques in an always challenging area.Available at http://www.simlabs.arc.nasa.gov/librarydocs/rtsimdocs/Toms.pdf Altu Ig E., Ostrowski J.
