In this letter, we investigate the average achievable data rate (AADR) of the control information delivery from the ground control station (GCS) to unmanned-aerial-vehicle (UAV) under a 3-D channel, which requires ultra-reliable and low-latency communications (URLLC) to avoid collision. The value of AADR can give insights on the packet size design. Achievable data rate under short channel blocklength is adopted to characterize the system performance. The UAV is assumed to be uniformly distributed within a restricted space. We first adopt the Gaussian-Chebyshev quadrature (GCQ) to approximate the exact AADR. The tight lower bound of AADR is derived in a closed form. Numerical results verify the correctness and tightness of our derived results.
