Paper presents a CFD study of axially-symmetric body representing an UAV using Coanda effect for producing lift. We show a maneuverability study of such an UAV under flow conditions denoted as asymmetric Coanda effect. Results are aimed at developers of this flight technology through various guidelines and recommendations.
