A new nonlinear disturbance observer (NDO) based generalized model predictive control method is derived for quadrotor attitude tracking missions. The parametric uncertainties, matched and mismatched disturbances are considered in the controller design. For the attitude subsystem, a generalized model predictive kinematic controller with NDO is designed to compensate for mismatched disturbances. For the angular velocity subsystem, generalized model predictive controller and NDO are combined to design the actual control input torques, where NDO is used to estimate the unknown disturbances, while the predictive control is used for optimizing the control efforts. The attitude tracking errors eventually converge to small neighborhoods of zero with the proposed control strategy, and the simulation results validate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
