It seems that the Return to Drone Bay command may be set to the wrong range. I've had several incidents where combat drones, upon being ordered to return to bay, have stopped, approximately 1800m away from my ship. Ordering them to Orbit Ship gets them to close to 1500m where they can be scooped to hold.

It is also possible that Return to Drone Bay may be invoking a direct return to the ship, leading to drones becoming entangled. If this is the case, then this could be remedied by altering the command such that the drones are first ordered to Orbit Ship with automatic scoop, rather than ordered to fly to ship.

I've had this quite a few times since the patch as well, I've had to stop and turn around and go back for my drones several times now as they are either going at 2 m/s or have stopped at around 1800m

Also, when they run off and start autotargeting, and you then tell them to engage a new target, they also seem to go very slowly, then after a few seconds they may, or may not speed up, I've had a lot of instances where 2 drones would behave, and the other three would slowly make there way to the target, it's very odd and a little frustrating :)

Although I had issues with return to drone bay prior to patch, these seem to be new variants on the odd behaviour

Love the new skills though :D
