Is there a skill that allows more drones out? I understand there is a limit based on your bandwidth.
I have trained Drones V and I switch between 3 Ogres and 5 Hammerhead I's. I'm currently training for T2 drones as well.
What I really want is to have more than 5 drones out. I seem to recall however that this isn't possible, yet I also seem to recall a skill that allowed, but I can't find it.

Is this possible?

No, only the Carrier and Supercarrier skills, or the fitting of a Drone Control Unit to one of them can increase the amount of drones used in space. There is no way to increase the amount of usable drones to a sub-cap class ship.

As is said above but slightly differently...

You can only have up to 5 drones/fighters/bombers under your direct control unless your ship lets you have more

And there are a very few sub-capitol ships that let you do this, but good luck getting one without paying about the same as a super carrier.

(edit=sub cap)

A few years ago the Drone Interfacing skill would add +1 drone per level. With the drone changes in Kali (I think?) they changed that to +20% damage and hitpoints. Also, Drone ships "back in the day" didn't have drone damage bonuses but instead got +1 drone per cruiser/battleship level so you could theoretically have 15 drones out in a Vexor or Domi.
