In this paper, we discuss an observer-based fault tolerant controller design for the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems with exogenous disturbance. To derive robust controller design conditions, we use $H_{\infty}$ design technique. The design conditions are derived in terms of linear matrix inequalities. An illustrative example is provided to show the effectiveness of the proposed methodology.
