The paper contains the analysis of basic features characterizing the development and modernization of micro-class unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) performance characteristics. The UAV is mainly used for environmental monitoring and for the monitoring of different industrial facilities. The study offers the ways of modernizing the UAV embodiment. It considers the methodology for improving UAV aerodynamic and structural characteristics by using modern calculation methods. The study also includes a theoretical investigation and computer simulation of aerodynamic characteristics.
