About 42.5 weeks is the theoretical minimum to max each droideka, assuming you are prepared to start the next upgrade as soon as the previous one completes, and no crystals used.
I wish it were so easy to upload the dekas as the numbers say. But the reality is that it takes a long time to finish uploaded them to level 50. You have to consider that you will only have 4/5 constructor droids to upgrade everything of your HQ, of which 1 droid will be dedicated exclusively to uploading to the deka. And when you reach level 9 HQ, your task will be doubled because the other droideka ,the Opressor,will be added there. So you will have 2 droids dedicated to upload exclusively to both dekas and only 3 droids to level up the rest of your HQ. When I upgrade to level 10, I had my DekA at level 27 and my DekO at level 20. Those are the highest values you can have for the droidekas for a level 9 player.
And before, you had to attack real bases to get enough cb to level up the dekas. And it was not an easy task to achieve it. Now, the dev bases simplified the matter a lot.
