As the technology is looping and far applications of UAV is improving so there is need to develop an UAV with optimum propulsive efficiency and also producing high thrust. So our mission is to build an UAV with twin propellers propelled by single motor. A fixed wing UAV which has a unique type of propulsion system. In this fixed wing UAV, two propellers are driven by single motor to enhance the propulsive efficiency. The bevel gear mechanism is the most important. This is the propulsion system for the aircraft model which runs the two propellers with a single motor. Bevel gears are used to transfer the power from the motor to the propeller. The bevel gear train is 80cm long through which a long shaft is passed that holds the bevel gears. Totally six bevel gears are housed inside the box which connects the motor shaft to the propeller shaft. The bevel gears are arranged in such a way that the when motor shaft rotates the propeller connected rotates both in opposite direction.
