How?

How can you hold down the target with the recon, whilst opening cyno and waiting for your SC to land on grid? How do the mechanics work? Can you still keep a target when cyno active and thus keep aggressing modules online?

for example: http://eve-kill.net/?a=kill_detail&kll_id=9208717

Sure. When you open a cyno, the only thing you can't do is move. All modules, guns, etc work just fine.

He's messing with you. No mods will cycle on the cyno ship once the cyno is active. The only mods that would work would be passive modules, like buffers etc.

No... the first guy was correct. The only things you can't do after you've popped a cyno is warp, dock, and move. Everything else works fine.

I highly advise dropping your SC solo, with no support, to gank random targets. What could go wrong?

Wow i didnt know there were still nubs out there who still believe you cant lock or activate any mods why lighting a cyno.... Yes you can activate any mod and lock a target... Yes you can solo drop your SC cause 90% of people wont see it coming and you will kill your target, and warp out before they know what hit them... Hell i know a half dozen SC pilots at least that solo drop there ships for fun.

No no no, you can totally not do anything with a cyno lit. There's absolutely no need to fear that random char sitting around there when you need to cyno in your JF.

Fit a ship scanner to make sure the JF isn't fit with a Damage Control II, trimark rigs, and 1600 plates, or else it is a trap! YARRRR!!

Luckily they aren't that common.

There are very, very few corps/alliances capable of getting together enough dps fast enough to hit a single SC before it can logoffski while randomly hotdropping idiots in freighters.

The question here is: how to know where to camp?

I mean, true, local JB network is nice, but how often do u get all this guys hopping with freighters around? Or u have an alt/spy in corp?

Also, if JF drops all the stuff, how do u scoop it with single SC?

JF could be hot dropped by a carrier too. Also, loosing a 1b isk gank carrier to a 4.5b....

if you are good enough.

Back in the day we called that "nync-ing" only nync would suicide a dread to pop a JF.

Keep an eye on market systems, how do you think they get supplied? That's right.

Happy fishin~ YARRRR!!
