Unmanned autonomous vehicles, especially multi-copters, are becoming nowadays ubiquitous. Its popularity is due to its relative maneuverability in civil field for performing a wide range of applications, for example, monitoring roads or areas at risk, remote surveillance, inspection of power lines, etc. However, some of these applications require more specific control tasks, even more, robust controllers because external dynamics or disturbances, in general, affect the flight.
