Definition of stable:
a. Resistant to change of position or condition; not easily moved or disturbed
b. Not subject to sudden or extreme change or fluctuation
c. Maintaining equilibrium; self-restoring

Using that definition stable would mean to fly straight with no change like I said. Being more stable would mean it has more resistance to change in its flight. Being less stable would mean have less resistance to change in its flight. So a drone would actually be less stable than a buzzz because it has a far more likelihood of deterring from its intended flight.
now terms like overstable are not actual words. and in the case of our sport overstable means to have more resistance to flying with the spin. thus having less turn and more fade. so a drone would be more overstable than a buzzz.
don't bastardize the language cause you don't truly understand the words you are using.

Then get a new one and throw them both. You'll love it that much.
The newest LE Z Drones (small stamp and pink, blue, etc...) are a bit stiff- in cold weather they feel like stone. The earlier run of DD LE Z Drones were a bit tackier (the orange, yellow, white and black). The thick rim just doesn't lend itself to flexing at all. I picked up two of the new ones, and would definitely prefer two of the older ones. But it's all personal preference for sure.

I love the drone though, and never play a round without one. Only complaint is it can actually act fickle and flippy on agressive flick shots.

Harsh but true. The Drone is more overstable than the Hornet. It's also slower.

Let's all say it together. High Speed Stability. Low Speed Stability. The Drone has more of BOTH than the Hornet. It doesn't get any easier than that.
