In this study, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) design, analysis and production was made using selective laser sintering (SLS) system. Four different aircraft bodies were designed in the interdisciplinary project, one of the models was selected by comparing the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis results. According to the numerical study, the model 4 design was found to be the most suitable among the tested models, then the design was produced with the SLS system. Finally, the actual flight test was carried out in three different weather conditions, and the results are presented here.
