Both these areas Civilian VTO and Space programmes are (as stated) going through technological revolutions yet the site as a whole still bitches on the size of chrome bumpers of (insert model here) aircaft.
Which begs the question.Is A net for aircraft enthusiasts or the last bastion for people suffering from OCD?
The politics forum has been requested by a large number of users, because political subjects have completely dominated the Non Aviation Forum for quite some time. There's a very active group of users who participate in Non Av, but are tired of being inundated with politics. Splitting it into a dedicated forum would ensure that only users wanting to see political discussion would be exposed to it. A helicopter/UAV forum is an interesting idea, but this is literally the first time I've heard that suggested. I'm not saying it wouldn't work, but we'd need to see a significant interest in the idea before we could consider it. Some users are already upset when topics are moved from Civ Av to a more appropriate forum, so a further splitting of aviation topics might not be very popular.
