There are 3 ways you can acquire drones for this.

Building a new drone hub then dismantling it. A Drone hub requires 12 metal, 8 electronics, and 3 power. With the research that adds 2 drones to a hub that makes 12 drones added for 8 electronics spent. There is no half cost return for dismantling drone hubs, but at least you aren't using additional power. SpaceY has reduced cost electronics so this is definitely the quickest and easiest method if you're importing electronics, but consumes metals quite quickly.

A Drone Assembler can create a Drone for 1 electronics, also requires 1 electronics for maintenence every couple of sols, but can be relatively quick when staffed by 12 engineer colonists. There is a breakthrough research that allows them to be constructed using metal instead of electronics, if you have that I would recommend this method.

Alternatively buy 5 drone hubs prefabs for delivery for $750 total, thats 50 drone (or 60 drones if you have the additional drone research). Viable option if you research Martian Patents (500 for 3000 research) over and over and don't have metal to spare. That's 3.33 drone hubs for every completed Martian Patents. Obviously requires good research rate and fuel supply to send rockets back.
