The use of drone base stations to provide wireless connectivity for ground terminals is becoming a promising part of future technologies. The design of such aerial networks is however different compared to cellular 2D networks, as antennas from the drones are looking down, and the channel model becomes height-dependent. In this paper, we study the effect of antenna patterns and height-dependent shadowing. We consider a random network topology to capture the effect of dynamic changes of thedoi:10.1109/pimrc.2017.8292753 dblp:conf/pimrc/AzariMARAP17 fatcat:atsgymkryjetdjqat4sfr2tds4
