The drones are entering our lives in many areas. There are many problems as well. Various studies are under way to solve these problems. The conventional drone manipulation method is a PUI (Physical User Interface) based which provides a two dimensional control and physically input value, but the newly presented manipulation method is a three dimensional NUI (Natural User Interface) based manipulation method which is mapped naturally with the movement of the drone. There were studies to analyze each manipulation method, but there was no precedent study to compare and analyze the characteristics of these two manipulation methods based on the experiment. Therefore, in this study, the designated sections are to be driven by each manipulation method, and the data obtained based on motion capture and subjective experience surveys are compared through the experiment.
