It's horses for courses and you need to consider where you want a drone to go and what you want it to do.
An anthropomorph is fine for going in with the team and being an extra man but it can only go the places the sam can go and is no match for him in a fire fight.
A Rotodrone isn't a great plan in tight corridors, touch a wall and your toast. In open environments they're amazing though, especially with a rifle.
Horizon Eyes can fit a pistol and swarm, they can't conceal a pistol though, deadly but obvious
A Steel Lynx is a monster in a fight but you roll one down a street and everyone will wonder what the tank is doing.
Our current Rigger uses
1 Rotodrone with concealed rifle - this provides outdoor area control, sniper support , watches our exit etc. but blends in until the first shot is fired
5 Aztechnology Crawlers with a mix of Heavy Pistols and Tazers in concealed mounts (one has a cyber hand) w/ gecko grips on the feet - these act as scouts, go through air ducts, under floors, under vehicles, hanging onto moving vehicles, straight up the outer walls of buildings all those hard to reach places that runners can't go. They flank, they surprise, they are eyes and ears and hands where it's hard to get them (and for finding invisible mages their ultrasound is very handy) - they are not great in a firefight and pretty fragile but they can shoot better than most drones with a pilot of 4 and lots of the same model means they can claim more space on the RCC for sharing programs (predator 6, tazer 6, crawler manuever 6, crawler evasion 6, crawler stealth 6
, smartgunsoft and clearsight 6.all spend a lot of time on the RCC and 5 drones each with a 12 dice attack pool can be quite nasty)
1 fly-spy for covert surveillance and reconnaissance
1 van - mostly legal mobile command centre
1 hyundai getaway car complete with internal flexible assault rifle, spike strips and lots of horsepower for when things get hairy.
The rigger mostly commands the drones, letting their programs do the work and flicks between the various feeds but can jump in for especially difficult situations.
