As in, if you know what you're doing, you can get some excellent results and fights will result in little to no damage to your systems and hull. But at the same time, those ships can be screwed over through little fault of your own (Crystal B was automated ships, Lanius B was the Clone Bay failing and this one is Drones).
But yeah, it's still rather fun and not completely overpowered.

Unfortunately, there are certain game exploits that can be used that will make for 0 wasted drones parts in fights against drone defended ships (I'm speaking of the turning hacking off en-route to the target just as the defense drone fires and then turning it back on after the shot passes over it)
I used that trick in my video. Seriously where the heck did you find that out? Because that is amazing!
