I'm a total fan of drones (what else, I'm gallentean... Cool); but controlling the Drones through rightclicks isn't really comfortable. It would be nice to have Drone controls added to the ship control panel. Maybe some additional buttons for launching drones, engaging targets and scooping to drone bay. Those could be placed next to the cargo, scanner, tactical overview and autopilot buttons without overloading the user interface... When flying ships without drone bay these buttons can be hidden, so nobody will get confused... Also shortcuts would come in handy. Rolling Eyes
For sure this idea isn't new... but I didn't found a Topic about it, so I thought I give it a try.

I agree. I like drones, but I find with everything else going on during combat that the right click menu is kinda clumsy.

I'd definitely like the option to create keyboard shortcuts for them, the less functions that depend on right click the better in my opinion. Would also give me something to do with my left hand.
