Are there any 3D navigation stacks for UAVs?

Hi everyone!

Are there any navigation stacks/packages, with collision avoidance, costmaps etc., built specifically for drones in ROS1/2? If not why?

Thanks in advance

Does anyone have experience of using move_base_flex for UAV navigation?

MoveIt! is not built specifically for UAV's but you can check its implementation for UAV navigation.

I've seen this. What I wonder is if it's possible to change the local/global plan in case of a dynamic obstacle appearance like move_base does in 2D navigation?

There's still the octomap layer that could handle some of that.
