For a quadrotor, one can identify the two well-known inherent rotorcraft characteristics: underactuation and strong coupling in pitch-yaw-roll. To confront these problems and design a station-keeping and tracking controller, dynamic inversion is used. Typical applications of dynamic inversion require the selection of the output control variables to render the internal dynamics stable. This means that in many cases, perfect tracking cannot be guaranteed for the actual desired outputs. Instead, the internal dynamics of the feedback linearised system is stabilised using a robust control term. Unlike standard dynamic inversion, the linear controller gains are chosen uniquely to satisfy the tracking performance. Stability and tracking performance are guaranteed using a Lyapunov-type proof. Simulation with a typical nonlinear quadrotor dynamic model is performed to show the effectiveness of the designed control law in the presence of input disturbances.
