    Recently, the interest in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is increasing due to the existence of diverse potential applications in civilian sector. These applications often require high level reasoning, which, in some cases, need specialist in the led. The step forward towards achieving constant interaction between the UAV and the human operator is to provide the pilot with the feel of the local environment of the UAV. The implementation of force feedback, with the aim of maximizing the telepresence of the pilot, meets the challenge of maintaining the stability of the overall telemanipulation loop, which might end up in compromising the telepresence. In addition, challenges, such as pervasive dissipation, lack of measurement and finite stroke of the haptic interface, are also faced.
