The MCT Gnat drone is specified as being "sold in packs of ten". Does the listed price of 800 include 10 drones, or just one with the "packs of ten" mention just being fluff?

After a re-read I think the 800 nuyen price can't possibly be for 10 drones when compared with the other fliers and therefore the pack of ten must be fluff <hurries off to correct excel generator file>

I don't like the gnat drone.  The fluff says its "slow" but its top speed is double a metahuman sprint.

However, what part of "sold in packs of 10" makes you think the listed price is for one drone?

Mostly because 80 nuyen for a practically invisible drone is too good (compared to similar drones at ~1K each!)... but that's me with a GM hat on

Sold in packs of ten is fluff text, cost is each.  Ammo is sold per 10 rounds and is clearly noted, every other cost in the CRB is each.  My RAW reading anyway.

Ammo has been clearly noted since 1st edition though, that's copypasta working in their favor.

I have no idea what their intent was, but sold in packs of 10 means sold in packs of 10 imo. It makes it cost much cheaper than the other micro drones but a lot of costs are wildly different in this game over very small stat changes. Either way all the microdrones are insanely cheap for the level of scouting they provide. far far better than astral for no investment in your character or monetarily, about the same as hacking based surveillance for so much less.
