Application CAD Server has posted an article on the design of a new low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. The article mentions that the craft was designed extensively using CFD.
In the words of Daniele Camatti, CEO of ProS3 and designer of the Pro Observer: "CFD analyses performed with STAR-CCM+ were critical in determining if the initial airframe designs were good enough to ensure the required flight performance. With STAR-CCM+ we were able to estimate with great precision the position of the aircraft's aerodynamic center, to such an extent that, from the first test flight onwards, we have completely avoided crashes."
