The Probodobodyne QBE is an unmanned command module that runs on electricity.


Generally placed at the top of the rocket, the Probodobodyne QBE provides full command module functionality. It has a much higher impact tolerance than the other robotic pods. The QBE is currently (1.0.5) the third lightest command pod, behind only the Probodobodyne OKTO2 and the Stayputnik Mk. 1.

The Probodobodyne QBE features a tiny size node on top and bottom.

Product description

The QBE is one of the few parts in Kerbal Space Program that is covered in multi-layer insulation.

QBE is Probodobodyne's latest development in probe miniaturization. Despite it's diminutive size, the QBE is a fully-functional and incredibly lightweight command unit. All this goodness comes at a price however: The QBE's tiny enclosure means there is no room for internal reaction wheels, and battery capacity is pitiful at best. Despite all this, or perhaps because of it, many engineers have found it to be ideally suited for those 'optional return' missions.
