Flight test and simulation results were presented for autonomous aerobatic helicopters. An autonomous aerobatic maneuver was executed on the miniature model helicopter. It was found that a tight yaw rate control by the tail rotor is necessary to counteract large and fast changes in the collective during some maneuvers.
