Abstract

The purpose of this experiment was to explore the behavior of two different drones, a DJI Phantom 4 and a scratch-built racing drone, performing the same maneuvers. The hypothesis (H₀) in this experiment is that there are no flight differences between a DJI Phantom 4 and a racing drone. The hypothesis (H₁) in this experiment is that there are flight differences between a DJI Phantom 4 and a racing drone. The statistical analysis used in this experiment was a two sample t-test assuming equal variances. Since some values were negative, the absolute values of the negative numbers were used for the t-tests in this study. The t-scores favor neither drone overall as there are four negative and four positive t-scores; therefore, the conclusion suggests that there are no differences in flight maneuvers between a racing drone and a DJI Phantom 4.
