This paper presents the aerodynamic results of a morphing wing study performed on the UAS S4 Éhecatl from Hydra Technologies. Only the cruise phase of the aircraft was considered (constant altitude and constant speed). The difference, from an aerodynamic point of view, between the morphing wing and the original wing was emphasized by computing and comparing their longitudinal aerodynamic coefficients (drag and lift). The computation of the aerodynamic characteristics was done using tornado with the Vortex Lattice Method.
