Scaled-model helicopters are highly nonlinear, coupled, and unstable machines. They have fast response and controlling them is very complicated and need high degree of precision. In this paper, a detailed nonlinear model is derived. Based upon input/output measurements of the nonlinear model, the dynamics of every channel are identified and Linear State Space Models (LSSMs) are obtained. Model Predictive Control (MPC) and optimal PID controller are designed for the obtained LSSM and then applied to the nonlinear plant and the results were compared.
