The emerging market for unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAV's, demands the development of effective design tools for small-scale aircraft. This research seeks to validate a previously developed drag build-up method for small air vehicles. Using the method, a drag prediction was made for an off-the-shelf, remotely controlled aircraft. The Oswald efficiency was predicted to be 0.852. Flight tests were then conducted using the RC plane, and the aircraft performance data was compared with the predicted performance data.
