This paper presents an aerodynamic loss prediction and design methodology that has been developed for ducted-fan system of a vertical takeoff and landing Micro Unmanned Air Vehicle (Micro UAV). The method is based on a parametric geometry model and semi-empirical aerodynamic methods. The developed loss correlation method was applied to an initial sizing attempt of a ducted fan system.
