Besides the Drone Nav computer and the rigs, is their anything else to increase drone control range?

How about ships with a bonus besides the Ishtar, is their one?

Nav computer makes them go faster. You want drone link augmenters.

Increase range with scout drone operation +5km per level.
Increase range with Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing +3km er level.

Is "Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing" affects the control range of electronic warfare drones only or all of the dornes types?

Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing [5] + Scout Drone Operation [5] + 8 x Drone Link Augmentor by my maths gets 220km - The Ishtar's range bonus isn't enough to make up for the reduced highslots so... IIRC there's a control range rig which might be enough.

Of course the real source of possible command range issues are the Carriers and their 100% bonus (which even with their reduced highs can therefore make 320km theoretical).

Base control range: 20km
Scout Drone Operation: +5km/level
Electronic Warfare Drone Interfacing +3km/level

(hi)Drone Link Augmentor: +20km/module
(rig)Drone Control Range Augmentor I: +15 km/rig
(rig)Drone Control Range Augmentor II: +20km/rig

Ishtar: +5km / Hac level

For a total of
Skills only: 20 + 25 + 15 = 60km
Ishtar unfitted: 20 + 25 + 25 + 15 = 85km
Ishtar max fitted: 20 + 25 + 25 + 15 + 100 + 40 = 225km
Any 8-high 3-rig, 400 calibration, 400 CPU ship, fitted: 20 + 25 + 15 + 160 + 55 = 275km

Don't forget carriers with their 200% bonus to drone control range :D

Though that's a bit of a touchy subject, wording is fighter control range, but its bonus is can deploy 1 additional fighter per level when we all know this just means drone. Not something I've ever tested personally.

Have always wondered if this applies to link augmenters.

THe fighter bonus is in fact fighter only, and even there it's somewhat Ironic. You can control fighters 160 AU away but have issues doing the same 200km away. Personally I have to admit I've never had any issues with fighters and their control range, however plenty of issues with wardens and the like. I trained carrier to five, but ignored this bonus since I've never felt limited by it anyway. I actually did consider including it in the post but decided not to simply because I've never seen much use of it. Granted I rarely sling fighters 249km out.
