I hate this thing. Cuts your income whenever you're damaged or not AND doesn't repair enough to be dependable.
Drone Recovery Arm + Hull Repair drone now that's money for nothing.

Does that actually work? I thought the Hull Repair drone was consumed in the process. I guess maybe if you jump out before it finishes?

I HAVE TO TRY THIS.

To the original poster: I am thinking you may be on to something. These events do feel more common in mantis space.

It is consumed in the process. However, if you have both it means you need a mere handful of drone parts to power your other drones so you have a ridiculous surplus that can all be fed to the Hull repair drone.

I think drone recovery arms also recover anti-ship and beam drones (offensive drones).
I've noticed that every time I destroy an enemy ship with drones, I always get a "refund" on those drones (and when I jump, my defense drones gets "refunded")


They do. That other guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
