In order to solve the switching problem between multiple complex control laws during the autonomous flight of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), a smooth switching method through series recurrence is proposed to obtain the integrator initial value. Firstly, all links of complex control laws are transformed formally and split into the basic units consisted of the proportion and integral. Secondly, all integrator initial values of complex control laws are deduced in turn to realize the aim of surface smooth switching, which realizes the smooth switching between the different control laws. Simulation verifies that the smooth switching method of multiple complex flight control laws is effective.
