Remotely piloted vehicles (RPV) are used in various fields. The article analyses RPV usage for aerial cargo transportation. The first part is an overview of RPVs used across the world as cargo transportation, their examples and prototypes, as well as the comparison of their advantages and disadvantages. The second part is an analysis of aircraft structural components, by comparing their various configurations. The best cargo delivery method is analysed; and a mathematical model of cargo drop from vehicle is presented.
