Main Question:
I know that this Stack Exchange website is for Drones and Model Aircraft, but would a question about RC cars be a valid question (i.e. on-topic/in scope) here?

Other Questions:

  • Is there already a Stack Exchange website for RC cars? I looked but couldn't find one...
    Just in case, I posted a new discussion on Area 51, if you think that it would be a helpful site, please vote it up and comment on it and/or post more ideas for it...
  • Is there any Stack Exchange websites that include RC cars in the containing data group?
  • Is there any way that we can modify this site to include all RC vehicles instead of just Drones and Aircraft?

    $\begingroup$ Aside from that, we've had questions that are related to common technologies between all RC fields, but nothing explicitly car-related. But we should really continue this discussion on the Meta site. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ So what exactly does this all mean? Can I ask my question about an RC car? Or is there something else I need to do? $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 5, 2021 at 19:22

    $\begingroup$ @JacobHornbeck If the question pertains mostly to electronic components of an RC car, like the esc, motor, radio system, etc. it should be fine for this site. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I would say yes.

Many of the technologies are similar, so there is likely to be a lot of overlap in knowledge - Motors, Batteries, Engines, Servos, Radio Equipment, etc. - and experience elsewhere has shown me that often the solution to a problem can come from a slightly tangential source; I'm sure there are issues drone users have that RC car users have solved, and vice-versa.

Just note that, at least to start with, the community is quite aircraft focussed so don't be disappointed if answers are initially slow to arrive!

    $\begingroup$ Additionally this forum is small and not really growing. We could easily handle a few more questions. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 7, 2021 at 7:39
