In many communications applications, unlike conventional antennas, lightweight, flexible, small antennas that can adapt to mechanical and industrial constraints are required. In this study, the results of antenna design operating at 2.4 GHz are presented for use in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) tele command links. In the parametric and optimization studies carried out on the antenna, it is aimed to increase the gain while keeping the size as small as possible. The requirements of the industry, such as light, aesthetics, miniature and high gain aspects of the antenna were targeted in the design process. Finally, an antenna of 55.2x88 mm size and 7dB gain was achieved using commercial electromagnetic design tools. The designed antenna become satisfying industrial requirements with these features.
