Hornet. I wanted to cut down on the number of discs in my bag and for the OS mid slot I could not decide on my Wasp (not much more OS than Buzz) or my Drone (almost too OS sometimes, especially when you have a Zone already). So I decided to get a Hornet. OS enough to do quick hyzers and fight headwind. But still enough glide to get some distance. I have noticed it wobbles more when I throw it hard, but maybe thats just me. It usually ends up where I want it though.
But if I absolutely had to choose between the two. I would go Drone.

I love my drone, starting to become my favorite disc, especially for windy days. It flies the exact same path no matter what direction the wind is blowing from Head,Tail, L to R, R to L. It flies identical. For me, it is truly a wind ignoring disc.
Wind ignoring disc=overstable.

I disagree. When I threw them, my FLX Drone was breaking in to fly just like my Wasp. It was a little shorter, but I could very easily see how someone could carry a Drone or two and cover everything but understable duties. With a severely beaten Pro-D, it could probably cover that role too.

Saying "wasp with hyzer is a drone" is a very poor argument. Because you can put hyzer on a drone. Then what? Are you just going to throw grenades with your wasp? I'm in Florida and some of these courses get mad windy and have tons of open water and its not worth risking something that might go straight for too long.

I'm not saying you can't hyzer a wasp, it's just not the same.

Aside from the other Drone arguments, I'll add mine:
I also use the Drone as my forehand mid, for shorter, hard-right dog legs.

Can somebody help me out with this, what is the main deference between the Zone and the Drone?
Why would I need both in the bag or do I even need both? Which do you prefer?
Sorry to thread jack but I'm not a big fan of the wasp.

I thought this too. I wanted to reduce the molds in my bag so I went out and field tested FLX Drone and ESP Zone to really see the difference. Its pretty much just distance. I could get the Drone out about 50 ft. further than the Zone. If I really cranked on the Zone I could get it close to the same distance but really sacrificed accuracy. So I use the Drone as my OS mid range and the Zone as more of just an OS approach & chip shot/headwind putter. If I did not use the Zone for headwind putts I could get by fine with just the Drone or a Hornet though. But not vice versa.

when i was throwing beadless mids, i used the drone as replacement for the gator...now that i'm back on the roc kick, the gator is back in the bag...side note: toyed with zone, never really liked it.

Really its wasp = roc and drone = gator

Drone: approach shots out to 250, in either a serious headwind, or hard left dog legs, short fh approaches with a hard right, and big skips.

Zone: headwind putts, short hyzer approaches, long flex out putts, shorter forehand approaches

Almost the same disc but one is longer, and one has very little skip. Between not having them, and using them, they'll always have a bag spot, even just situational shots

Drone i carry 3 in the bag at all time. 1 for forhand flicks beat in great and 1 for back hand huge hyzer and 1 for driving with.

Comparing a Wasp TO a Drone is like comparing a Flick to a Surge its just crazy and makes no sense.
