The drone controls are not as intuitive as other weapon controls, so I thought that would't it be possible to drag and shift-drag drones like normal weapons in UI? There is usually more than enough slots, you never use them all. Also shift dragging drones would be nice, so you could make different drone-groups fast. Default command for pressing the button could be "eject drone(s)" and after they are ejected, "attack target". That way you could use the F-buttons for drone controls and no need for mouse anymore.

Dunno if this has proposed before or if it has some problems... Shoot it down if its silly.

I like this idea. Maybe have the overheat area the the launch/recover and then the main portion of the button is action. Then just have it so you right click to set the action whether it's guard, attack, assit.

I just use the hot keys for drones, just as easy and lets me use one hand for controlling drones while I target and such with my other. The only commend/button I would like to see really is the 'launch drones' command.

Yes, the shortcuts are there already and I use them. But this would help with different drone groups and like you said, "launch drones".
