The Maller needs a bigger drone bay. 3 drones is just not enough to do anything useful.
The tracking on the maller is also really bad, full drone bay is much needed

Why don't you use an Omen instead then? It can field a full flight of 5 drones.

Maybe a better choice, since you don't know how to fly the Maller.

The maller is one of the stronger t1 cruisers, so no.

You haven't made it clear what you're trying to do with the maller or why its drone bay is too little so as far as i can tell, you just want a t1 cruiser that gets the best of everything. Right?

Have you considered that the Maller is a ship that is geared more for "fleet roles" than as a "standalone package?"

Get a small group of Mallers supported by RR and some fast tackle. Now you have a small gang that is VERY tough to kill.

Mallers are already terrifying ships, though more so depending on where you live ( Cough cough Cyno Bait cough ), i dont know that they need that kind of Tank with even more DPS.

Not to mention its not the only ship with a partial drone bay its all a balancing factor
