Right now it appears that Most GCS use this “User” field or the actual parameter name to sort/identify critical parameters and those that should only be changed by advanced users. Is there an easier way that could help everyone out rather than the binary Standard/Advanced user field?
Something that came to my mind was Tags. Parameters that are changed often could be assigned tags that help search or categorize them. It would help group critical parameters during tuning time.
For example, when I am tuning planes for landing, I need both LAND_ parameters and TECS_LAND parameters. In addition, a few other useful parameters such as LEVEL_ROLL_LIMIT and USE_REV_THRUST would also be applicable. Each of those parameters could have tags, one of which could be a // @Tags: field that would include words separated by commas or semicolons to assist in grouping parameters that may not be in the same class.
Some group tags that come to my mind would be Takeoff, Steering, Attitude, Speed, Navigation, Altitude, Failsafe, Safety, RTH, Input, Output, etc. What do you think? Would this help new users find the right parameters to modify without searching through nearly 1,000 parameters?
