The intended aircraft in this issue is an UAV type, capable of performing multiple missions. In this paper, after the linearization of the pitch channel, the transfer function for important points is extracted. After that, a robust classic compensator and an angular velocity damper are designed. According to the range of uncertainties, the compensator is adjusted by article bee colony algorithm. Also, the optimal value of the wing sweep back angle is obtained indirectly from the optimal value of the center of aerodynamic pressure. The optimization approach in this pepper is to make pitch channel robust to uncertainties. The results show that with the innovation in the design of the classic controller and its combination with Mont Carlo simulation and Optimization algorithm, the behavior of the pitch channel in the presence of uncertainties has been improved.
