Micro or mini aerial vehicles are characterized by the fact that they are likely to be build in relatively low numbers for the sensors and equipment available at the time of deployment. Therefore "design and build on demand" is very attractive, where a modular concept with a more or less automated design process is desirable. In this paper design automation of a Micro or Mini Aerial Vehicle (MAV) is demonstrated using design optimization with both discrete and continuous variables. This involves both selections of components for the propulsion system, as well as geometrical parameters for the airframe.
