In Dark Orbit there are 2 types of drones. Only difference between them is how many slots are available on each drone.
1) Flax has one slot and is sold for credits
2) Iris has two slots and is sold for Uridium. It’s an Elite accessory for your ship.
Any ship can have up to 8 drones, types of drones can be mixed.
Drones are needed to stand up to stronger NCPs and to other players. Drones can hold Shields, Lasers, Extras, but not Engines.
Cost of drones rises every time you by one. Prices are as follows:
Flax drones cost:
1st Drone 100.000 Credits
2nd Drone 200.000 Credits
3rd Drone 400.000 Credits
4th Drone 800.000 Credits
5th Drone 1.600.000 Credits
6th Drone 3.200.000 Credits
7th Drone 6.400.000 Credits
8th Drone 12.800.000 Credits
Iris drones cost:
1st Drone 15.000 Uridium
2nd Drone 24.000 Uridium
3rd Drone 42.000 Uridium
4th Drone 60.000 Uridium
5th Drone 84.000 Uridium
6th Drone 96.000 Uridium
7th Drone 126.000 Uridium
8th Drone 200.000 Uridium
If you have all 8 drones and you want to change one from 1slot drone to 2 slot drone then you have to sell the one you don’t need and buy the one you want. There is no upgrade.
At the end of the day you want to have all Iris drones, because only they will provide you with all the firing power and shields to successfully fight the most powerful enemy ships in the game.
It’s not uncommon to buy the last Iris drone for credits in the Trade section. Drones are one of the most sought after items, so they never will be cheap on major servers (Global America, Global Europe). To get one you should bid between 60 and 120 million credits. I bought mine for 96million (for the previous seven I spent real money to buy Uridium)
