This paper provides a preliminary study for an efficient learning algorithm by reasoning the error from first principle physics to generate learning signals in near real time. Motivated by iterative learning control (ILC), this learning algorithm is applied to the feedforward control loop of the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), enabling the learning from errors made by other UAVs with different dynamics or flying in different scenarios. This learning framework improves the data utilization efficiency and learning reliability via analytically incorporating the physical model mapping, and enhances the flexibility of the model-based methodology with equipping it with the self-learning capability. Numerical studies are performed to validate the proposed learning algorithm.
