Drop down terminals

I like drop down terminals. They're something I can't live without. Since a lot of time I had been using the Gnome shell extension but Gnome shell extensions, though great and light weight, are a bit unreliable at this time. They cause trouble almost always after every distribution upgrade, Firefox upgrade or gnome shell upgrade. Its all the more troublesome since Firefox shifted to rapid updates.

A good alternative is Guake. Gives a lot of customization, and does what it says. But I don't want any customization. I want just a simple, fast, reliable terminal whose sole purpose is to drop down when commanded to. So, I've stripped Guake of all the customization. Lets see how long it says loyal.
