The paper describes and evaluates a predictive, robust, nonlinear feedback-loop flight control model that is applicable to various classes of UAVs in unsteady flight-path scenarios including control of wake response. We demonstrate the capability of the proposed nonlinear control method to asymptotically reject gust disturbances and parameter variations in the state space model.
