I've been wondering how using mining drones and frigates (like the Probe) does work.
What I mean is this: you have about 400-500 m of cargo room. Your mining drones will mine until their own cargo holds (1200 m) are full, then they drop their ore into your cargo hold. Somehow the math don't work - how do you manage to do this ?

No, they drop it directly into your cargo hold.

I think they only do 1.2 m each run..

No, they do exactly what they say they do. For example, a mining drone II does 20m3 base.

I suppose the 1200 m cargo room for drones in the item database is a typo then

I've raised this same question in 3 different threads, and noone is yet to give me a definitive answer

Most likely, they can't possibly have such a large hold if they take up less space than that anyway.

Think of the mining drones as pet squirrels; they run to the "tree", stuff their mouths with "nuts", than come running back and spit them into your hold. Wax, rinse, repeat. So if they get 20m^3 per cycle, they jam 20m^3 of ore into their little claws and scamper back to deposit it.
