Funnily enough, we've already got a very similar question here on Meta :)
My argument regarding this is as follows:
While technically purely electronics related questions can be thought of as out of scope and redirected to, for example, Electronics.SE, some of them are very common in dronebuilding, and some have a different, nontrivial answer in the UAV/model aircraft context. For example, no one abuses their Li-Po batteries nearly like we do, so for most questions regarding lipos and protecting them from damage the non-drone answer would be "just don't expose them to very high currents, mechanical damage or over-discharge". Ha ha.
Even if that's not enough of an argument, and we do decide to move those questions to ESE, close, delete and otherwise remove them from our site, visiting drone builders and owners will still have them. And, not finding anything of the sort on the site, they will keep asking them. So it will be a constant battle of closing, redirecting, etc. I think a better solution is to keep one of each question of this type. Use our private beta powers to mold those to be the very model of question X. And then we gain two benefits:
- Anyone who has the question will find it in search before asking another one, so we'll hopefully never get another such question ever again;
- On the rare occurrence anyone when one does get asked, we can just mark it as duplicate of the canonical question and be done with it (if it is indeed a duplicate), or if it's a genuinely new (but still basic) question, do the same kind of makeover to mold it into another "canonical" question.
