I've had my droid for a couple years now and have used it in tournaments, in the woods, walk on days at the XBall field, the middle of winter, this marker has seen it all. I've been pretty impressed with it overall. It has a good feel in your hands and is comfortable to hold.

The milling is really nice; I really like the aesthetics of this marker, but I do have a complaint about the milling. The small tabs that extend off the back of the body over the back cap can get bent down, one got bent down on my marker and the back cap is a little harder to remove now.
Performance wise the droid is great, it is very smooth, consistent (and accurate as a result), and for a spool valve gun it gets pretty good efficiency. The only time it ever gave me trouble was when I used it during the winter in -20* Celsius, it had some minor FSDO problems and lost some consistency. However once you started shooting the gun and it warmed up a bit from the friction of cycling it returned to normal.

The droid has a lot of nice features, the stock barrel is great so you don't need to upgrade it. The stock ASA is really nice too, however there is not a lot of meat on the rails (on the ASA not the marker) so they can snap off if you mess up a dive, happened to me at a practice. The stock trigger is quite nice as well, it has a really nice feel and hardly any play. I did upgrade mine to a CP because I liked the shape a bit better.
One feature I really like is the simple switch to turn the marker on and off, very useful if the ref calls the 5 second warning and you notice your marker is turned off. They put it in the perfect place as well; right at the top of the back of the grip frame so you can flick it with your thumb. The feedneck is great, nice low profile lever lock with a thumb screw to adjust tension.

Maintenance can be a bit complicated for the inexperienced. There are lots of parts in the bolt engine of this marker compared to some spools that only have a few parts to clean and lube inside. As long as you follow the manual you'll be fine, and once you do it a few times it becomes routine. If you take care of this marker you will be rewarded with flawless performance time after time. Regulator maintenance is pretty simple, just the usual piston and shim setup but it works very well. I find velocity adjustment to be very touchy on my reg, a 1/4 turn of the screw can give you quite a big change in velocity.

I really love my droid, it has been a great marker for me and I don't think I'll ever sell it. The only reason I won't give it five stars for performance is because of the problems you can have in the cold (not that other markers don't have the same problems).
Thanks for reading!

MacDev Droid Out of all the markers (pre 11) that I have used this is by far my favorite. Quiet, efficient, very little kick, feels good shooting it. nothing bad to say about this!

I purchased my Droid new in the summer of 2008. I was extremely impressed with the quality of the Matchstick barrel and the quietness of the marker but underwhelmed by the stock trigger and had issues with the v2 bolt but was able to resolve those issues with the available gold bolt and the violent series trigger.

I bought one of these guns and tested it out on the field for the day and was very happy with the gun. I actually owned a V1 clone with V2 parts at the same time and for the difference in price I was dissapointed with my clone actually. The gun was extremely accurate and efficient. I have used the 06 cyborg clone and droid and have been happy with all of them so far

the droid is one of my favorite guns... as long as it has v2 or v3 parts in it. the v1 parts were prone to cracking and the marker would not fire.... they were eventually fixed, but at first you never know what is wrong until you realize the bolt has broken into two separate pieces!

these markers are very easy to tune up and maintain though. a dozen o-rings to lube up, the just set the HPR and GO!!!!
