Skywalker X5 UAV Aerodynamic CFD Simulation, ANSYS Fluent Training


The Skywalker X5 is a small, fixed-wing UAV for use in surveillance, aerial inspection, and surveying tasks. It has a high-quality mapping camera, a hand or catapult lunached, can fly missions independently, and lands with a parachute.

The X5 is a fantastic-looking FPV with a sensible cabin configuration that can accommodate more extensive electric systems. It has a wide range of professional applications and can be incorporated into new industries.

In this simulation, a Skywalker X5 UAV with one propeller rotating around the horizontal axis is modeled using ANSYS Fluent software. The device is moving at a speed of 60 km/h.

The geometry of the present model is three-dimensional and has been designed using Design Modeler software. We do the meshing of the present model with ANSYS Meshing software. The mesh type is Polyhedra, and the element number is 1,195,030.

Methodology: Skywalker X5 UAV CFD Simulation

The Multiple Reference Frames (MRF) method is used to model the rotational motion of the propeller.


After the simulation process was finished, contours and vectors for parameters such as velocity, pressure and turbulent intensity were obtained. As shown in the velocity contours, the vortexes behind the propeller are visible where the turbulent intensity parameter is high.

Compared to other UAVs, this model endures less amount of drag force. One of the reasons for this is the absence of any part of the UAV behind the vortexes because these vortexes increase the amount of drag by hitting any part significantly.

In the static pressure parameter case, as it was predictable, the UAV’s front surfaces endure the highest pressure. The maximum static pressure is applied to the propellers’ edges, which tells us about the necessity of the manufacturing focus on this component.

      MR CFD Support

      Dear customer, thank you for your review and interest in our simulation products! While the MR CFD Company doesn’t directly offer UAV design services, the insights from the Skywalker X5 Drone simulation can help you understand areas that might help reduce drag. For instance, considering streamlined shapes and minimizing protruding elements could be key factors. Additionally, the position and design of components such as propellers and landing gears can impact the airflow and consequently the drag force. It’s always advisable to consult with an aerodynamics expert for specific design enhancements.

    The approach with using MRF to simulate the rotational motion of the propeller seems effective. Have any comparisons been made with alternative methods for capturing rotating motion, such as the Sliding Mesh technique?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Thank you for your thoughtful question! While the MRF method is used in this simulation for its simplicity and speed, the Sliding Mesh technique can offer a more accurate representation of transient phenomena and the interaction between the rotating and static zones. However, it is also more computationally expensive. In our training material, we focus on the MRF method due to its wide range of applications and suitability for steady-state simulations, which fits the context of our Skywalker X5 Drone CFD Analysis.

    I’m deeply fascinated by the aerodynamic features of the Skywalker X5 Drone, based on your analysis it seems to perform very well! The balance between drag reduction and structural integrity appears to be very well-managed. Can you elaborate on how the UAV’s design contributes to its superior aerodynamic profile?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      Thank you for your kind words and interest in the Skywalker X5 Drone’s aerodynamics. The design of the UAV contributes to its excellent aerodynamic profile by employing a smooth, streamlined body that minimizes resistance and turbulence during flight. Additionally, the careful placement of components such as the propellers and the mapping camera ensures that these potential sources of drag are integrated in a way that aligns with the airflow, further reducing the drag quotient. Every aspect of the UAV’s structure, from the wing shape to the tail configuration, is optimized for better flow dynamics, allowing the Skywalker X5 to achieve less drag compared to other UAV models.

    I’ve always been curious about UAV aerodynamics. Could you shed some light on how the static pressure variations on the UAV propellers affect its flight stability?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      The variations in static pressure on the propellers play a crucial role in the UAV’s flight stability. When a propeller rotates, the higher static pressure at the edges demonstrates the differential between the leading and trailing edges, which translates to lift generation critical for the UAV’s ability to maintain flight. Manufacturers need to focus on the propeller design to ensure that it can withstand these pressure differences without deforming. This ensures both the efficiency and stability of the UAV during flight operations.

    The Skywalker X5 UAV CFD simulation seems quite detailed. Did the analysis also examine potential stress points on the propellers due to pressure variations?

    • Avatar Of Mr Cfd Support

      MR CFD Support

      In this particular simulation, the primary focus was on aerodynamic parameters such as velocity, pressure, and turbulent intensity. While the maximum static pressure is mentioned to occur at the propeller edges, which is critical for design considerations, the training does not explicitly state that structural stress or fatigue analysis was explored. However, these aspects would be vital in practical applications for ensuring the durability and safety of the UAV.
