Hybrid modeling and control issues provide a flexible powerful tool for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) as complex control platforms. This paper aims to briefly review recent results in this area. Firstly, existing works on hybrid modeling and control of a single UAV are reviewed. Then multiple UAVs control in a synchronously cooperative task planning, which gives much more maneuverability, has been surveyed in the hybrid framework. Formation control of UAVs is a typical cooperative strategy with considerable applications in multi-agent aerial robotics area and can leverage limited abilities of single UAVs into complicated tasks of group missions. There are a few works in this field which we briefly reviewed their results and explored the possible future directions of these research activities.
