First Run Z Drones

Are the First Run Z Drones made out of the usual Z plastic or are they made in a z/esp blend like the Z Hornet? I want one only if they are making them in the usual, super durable Z plastic like they use for Wasps. Anybody know?

I don't know what edition mine was, but it was regular Z plastic. I always hated the softer version the Hornets were made out of.

Ever try a Gateway Demon? They're superior in every way IMHO. The Evolution plastic is pretty durable and feels great.

They're made out of opaque Z.

What does "opaque" mean? A softer/less durable blend like the Hornet?

No. It's a run of Z that's opaque. They are less overstable than the flat and firm FLX Drones but don't change. I have several of them, and I never had to replace my first one.

Opaque means you can't see through it

So they are the same regular durable Z plastic and you can't see through them so they are probably brighter in color. I will be ordering one for sure.

Ohhhh...you're talking about the First Production Run. Sorry. I thought you were talking about the 09 era. Ignore my posts then.

I threw one today and it was very stiff and grippy. It was probably just as overstable as my glow gator if not more because it was new. No idea how it will break in but it was a pretty nice os mid.

I have been thinking about dropping my Hornet for a few reasons and replacing it with either a Z Drone or a Glo CFR Gator. Could you compare the two more?
