Our robots are UAV's and I have a hard time seeing what the navigation 
stack gives me. But maybe I am just missing something.

One usecase we have is to plan a motion plan (or a gemoetric path) and 
send that to the UAV. But it seems to me that the navigation stack is 
more targeted to ground robot and continiously moving them and 
comtiniously controlling them.

But maybe I am just missing something. With the new hydro I will probaby 
look at the navigation stack again.
