Been playing with the Droid for about 5 months and have been enjoying it. I am typically not a spool valve fan for a few reasons and use my A1 as my primary gun. I really like the way both guns shoot and feel different. The droid is well balanced, lightweight, and air efficient. The trigger feel is a little sloppy with some side to side movement and comes set up very badly out of the box. Take some time to set it up before you go out to play. Something I think is missing, perhaps from being spoiled with the a1, is an OLED display like the a1's and egos have. All work with the board is done through the trigger with series of blinking colored led's; consult the manual. I've had to replace one o-ring in the gun and have probably put about 8 cases through it. Typical spool valve maintenance, a little annoying and too often.
Conclusion: Love the Droid. Not everything I would like in a gun but a great marker to rip on some ballers. Almost zero problems with it, changed one o-ring and some slow shooting/skipped shots one day. After that day worked normally.
