Systematic experimental studies were taken up in the 1.5m wind tunnel at NAL on thin constant-thickness MAV planforms to study the effect of a variety of planform configurations on the flow and MAV performance. The first phase was a configuration study over a variety of MAV planform shapes and camber conducting force and pressure measurements along with surface oil flow visualization. In the present second phase, selected planforms were used to study different aspects of the configuration like powered propellers, the leading edge shape and planform aspect ratio. PIV studies on the MAV planform conducted to study the leading edge bubble, the tip vortices and their interactions are reported in the third phase.
