A drone is a vehicle with no human pilot, staff, or passengers aboard recently used in various civil and military applications. Drones are controlled remotely by a human operator and flown. The technical advantages of free-space optical (FSO) technology motivated the researchers to continue investigating to use it in the communication between drones. Nevertheless, every technology face limiting factors that degrade performance. In this paper, the channel gain H effect was taken into consideration. The purpose is to compare the performance among different topologies that the system consists of, determine the effect of increase the drone’s number on the system performance, and extract the highest altitude h the system can reach. The system was simulated using MATLAB 2020, and the results showed that as the number of drones increased, the Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) increased. The maximum link distance Z between any two parts and the maximum altitude h the system reached was 7800 m.
