This paper presents the controller synthesis for an unmanned helicopter with minimum initial information about the parameters of its mathematical model with time-delays of measured and control signals. The unknown parameters, wind disturbances, and system nonlinearity are considered as external disturbances that are estimated using a multi-gap observer. The estimates obtained are used in the control law to improve the stability rate for flight regimes.
