Default Sniper drones

I really like snipers and I wanted to know if sniper drones are good.
they hover, so can they go vertical? Is the extra 24 inches worth it?

If you want a Space Marine killer, they are definently worth it.

What is the armor save for a space marine against a sniper drone?

They don't get one. Also, if you get some, I reccomend 3 teams. It still cost the regular one FOC choice, and since they come with target locks, you can go for maximum pinning tests!

Not sure what you mean by that. Under the rules, they're just Infantry, and Size 2. See rulebook.

Well, any unit equipped with Jump packs (or the equivelent, ex. Tau Jumppacks) can scale buildings. However, though the drone can, the drone cannot. So no, they cannot scale biuldings (unless you want to spend 2-3 turns getting the drones +controller running up the stairs).

I thought any unit could move the virtical equivalent to how it moves horizantally,
also any good army name suggestions for the medusa V campaign?

I don't know why you would want to move sniper drones anyway, considering the rifle is heavy.

Though I may certainly invest in some as i've got a friend who plays death guard.

The follow the normal movement rules for Infantry. Not Jump Infantry, as they do not have Jet Packs.
