With regards to drone assist:

- Are the assisted drones governed by the original owners skills etc or by the player who is being assisted?
- Do ship bonuses have any affect on assisted drones?
- Roughly same question but modules, i.e tracking link etc

After a very brief cursory search I couldn't find a specific enough answer, I appreciate it's probably me being a spastic but any decent response would be much appreciated, cheers.

For combat drones, not fighters drones.

The drone stats (damage, tracking, etc) are affected ONLY by the ship & character that launched them.
To assist drones, the buddy you are assisting to must be within your drone control range.
For your assisted drones to start an attack, the target must be within your ships drone control range.
Once drones have started attacking, they will continue to attack the target even if it moves beyond your ships drone control range (to a point).

For Fighters, the rules are different, and I'll leave that to someone more familiar with fighter drones to answer.

Fighter Damage is increased by your ship boni (Thanatos / Nyx / Revenant, 100 % bonus damage from SCs in general) and all modules, which can affect them.
If you delegate the fighter, they will keep the betters values.

Fighter Bombers are diffrent, and this does not really matter here.
