The design problem of the high precision stabilizer for hovering of the helicopter about the point object as a part of the automatic control system (ACS) is considered. Here we substantiate method and models for hover mode of helicopter as well as measurements of parameters of this flight mode that requires smaller volume of calculation and preserves high speed and accuracy of stabilization. Also we investigate reduction of number of state vectors and volume of calculation via usage of extended Kalman filter (EKF) and standard sensors.
