i take it this is for sec where there is no rats? cos i dnt think it will hold against rats if there is any. i wud say if u want the better ore use 5 scout drones 2 sort out the rats. sacrifice ur mining drones

I would recommend 2 changes.  1 - use strip miner IIs for the extra mining ability.  For protection - use 4 mining drones and one scout drone.  If your scout drone ability is high enough it will take down most high sec rats with minimum loss of shields.

Captain S04P, T2 strips brings more IN FACT. Please learn basics before start Your mining career.
In example, fit proper mining crystal in T2 strip.

Strip Miner I: 340 m3/min
Modulated Stripminer II + T1 crystal: 368 m3/min
Modulated Stripminer II + T2 crystal: 396 m3/min

With gang bonuses, it is 1307.4 m3/cycle for me.

BTW, do NOT fit long-range survey scanners on barges. Barges are EXTREMELY slow, even slowboating 800m to cover the gap between stripminers range (15'000m) and Rock-Scanning Array sensors distance (15'750m) takes up to minute(!). Every one second of inactivity of 2 stripminers costs You 1k ISK. That's EVERY second.
