This letter studies the signal-to-interference-plus-noise (SINR) meta distribution of uplink transmission of UAV-enabled wireless networks with inversion power control. Within a framework of stochastic geometry, the Matern cluster process (MCP) is used to model the locations of users and UAVs. Conditional success probability and moments are derived to compute the exact expression and moment matching approximation of SINR meta distribution (beta approximation). Specifically, the effect of the power control compensation factor and UAV altitude are studied. Our numerical results show that UAV altitude has a higher impact on the system reliability than transmit power at low values of SINR threshold since users benefit more from establishing line-of-sight (LoS) links with UAVs.
