It differs in that it will have a concentration of people who can answer the questions. In my experience: Aviation isn't much good at answering questions about the practical applications of aerodynamics. It's a reasonable place to go for theoretical answers, but the practical experience of the userbase is limited to large fixed-wing aircraft. LiPo battery ...

This is a very good question. Personally, I feel the answer should be yes... in most cases. I think it is easy to agree that bug reports and associated issues with software packages should go on their respective GitHub issue trackers. That much I think is clear. When it comes to "user-error" problems and questions about the behavior of said software ...

This is a good question. Rather than answering each part piecemeal, I think it's helpful to set up a comparison to Robotics alone. Robotics (for general automation and control questions) This is SE's catch-all for everything automated. The robotics field is so huge, it can arguably cover washing machines, elevators, coffee pots, and all of commercial ...

My concept for what this proposal would turn into if it passed into the beta stage is a forum where questions and resources which technically fall into the purview of other SE sites, like the aforementioned Aviation, EE, and Robotics, could be discussed through a lens more focused on applications to model aviation and drones. Often times, when I look for ...

I would also want product specific questions to be considered as on topic for this new site. IMHO, one goal of the site should be to help hobbyists and people new to the field to become familiar with the everyday tools and features in these tools so that they can achieve specific results. For example, after building my first quad-copter, I’ve come to ...

No, they should not be on-topic at this point in time. What makes the difference between a good tool-specific question and one guaranteed to quickly go stale is the stability of the tool-set. Drone autopilots are still very much in flux, with projects forking and being abandoned on a yearly basis. Graphics, UI, and APIs are constantly being updated and ...
