Note: Character is built for specific rigger house rules... Reaction and Agility are used for piloting and gunnery when in AR remote control and when rigged in. Intuition and Logic are used for those skills when in VR remote control (but not jumped in).   

Thought I'd give a hand at some drone rigger love, especially remixed away from being more of an add-on to vehicle rigging. 

Made a street journalist who has a thing for sensors/constant data recording. Character runs the shadows as a face to supplement income and to get more insight into corporate and underworld goings on that can be spun into a story he can sell to to infobrokers (with corroborating evidence) or even mainstream sources. Uses flying eyes for surveillance and keeps a doberman in the drunk when extra firepower may be needed. 

Let me know your thoughts!

Looks fun as always.

Not sure if they're allowing it because of houserules, but you may want to consider changing Perception to Electronic Warfare, for the noise/sensor operation instead, since I don't think they'll use their meat eyes nearly as much as just sensors through said eyes.

I'd more than likely drop Locksmith for the autosoft to use through a small drone or similar if possible.

In a similar vein, navigation "outdoor group" could be dropped for the autosoft navigation, and then put that 4 group skill in something else.  Tho survival and tracking do have some niche uses, like urban tracking is decent to figure out crowd patterns, but arguably etiquette or even a knowledge: forensics autosoft can cover this instead.  Mostly, I like the autosofts to do the skill lifting if possible, and the 'reporter' to do the face stuff when I tried a similar concept build.

Hope those are good thoughts, looks fun tho!
