In this work, we carry out a detailed study of the change in aerodynamic forces due to wing deformation in flight. The results presented are for a wing model of a fixed semi aspect ratio $sAR = 4$, and different chord-based Reynolds numbers in the range of application of UAVs. Our results show that numerical simulations with turbulence models are able to accurately simulate these aerodynamic forces when compared to experimental results obtained in the wind tunnel.
