A nonlinear stabilization of vertical take-off and landing aircrafts exposed to wind is presented. The algorithm is based on a robust control Lyapunov function approach and rejects disturbances without knowledge of them. Two nonlinear models considering the disturbances are proposed. Simulations and experimental results show the good performance of the proposed control strategy.
