E. P. Udartsev, S. I. Alekseenko, A. I. Sattarov



Improvement of unmanned aerial vehicle navigation reliability in rough air and gusts is providedby aerodynamic characteristics of unmanned aerial vehicle. Investigation of leading edge vortexgenerators effectiveness in subsonic wind tunnels and on RC airplane was presented. Aerodynamic featuresof UAVs with vortex-active wing, which should be considered during the development of automaticflight control system, were considered
