Winglet is a tool used to improve the efficiency of aircraft and UAV performance by preventing fluid flow jump from lower surface to upper surface at wingtip. The addition of this winglet resulted in improved lift and reduction of drag force from the aircraft wing or UAV. From Whitcomb's research, it was found that the use of winglet on a full size airplane can increase fuel efficiency by 7%. The research led to the idea of conducting research on fluid flow characteristics on the UAV wing with the Eppler 562 airfoil combined with the whitcomb winglet. This numerical study was conducted using the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method based on the advantages of using this simulation that can review the fluid flow in macroscopic way. This study is provide accurate fluid flow visualization results and can improve the performance of the wings when compared with wings without winglet (plain wing). Wing with the Eppler 562 airfoil combined with the whitcomb winglet results reduction in rotating motion that makes velocity components as opposed to lift.
