From what i've read, it is due to the shape of the lip. It takes too much material to make, and thus they are overweight. Back when the drone was first released there was a lot of talk about it never being made in z plastic, because there was no way to make it within weight.

I do love the fact that you just pick and choose which rules to follow. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy about players following rules.

Drones are legal to 178.5g. and DD just weighed 20-25 of them for me, and none are under 180. I sent 3 back to them, 180.2, 180.0 and 182.
