While helicopters present numerous challenges for control design, human RC pilots are nonetheless capable of performing extreme aerobatics by learning from experience and from other pilots.? We present learning algorithms that similarly learn from demonstrations of expert pilots and their own flight experience.? These algorithms have been implemented on the Stanford Autonomous Helicopter, which is now capable of flying aerobatics at the level of an expert human pilot — well beyond the performance of any other autonomous helicopter.
