This research was carried out aiming the modification in the present design process for Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV). UAVs are flying machines, that are either self-piloted or flown by a pilot. The desired goal was fulfilled by designing and fabricating a lightweight, twin boomed, U tail RC Plane. The design was originally modelled in Solid Works. The airfoil analysis was carried out in xflr5 v6 and then verified by ANSYS 2019 R2 (Academic Version). Wing analysis was done in ANSYS 2019 R3, for obtaining static and total pressure distribution. Finally, the model was analyzed in both aerial and ground tests.
