The RC-001S Remote Guidance Unit is a command module built for unmanned Size 1 rockets.


Designed to be placed anywhere in a small-diameter stack, the RC-001S Remote Guidance Unit provides full command module functionality and SAS torque.

It consumes almost twice as much electricity as most other probe cores but, like its larger sibling the RC-L01 Remote Guidance Unit, stores three times as much electric charge. RGUs remain operational about four minutes longer than any other probe core[outdated] without another power source.


Developed at the behest of H.R. departments everywhere, the RGU not only allows for control of unmanned rockets, it's also equipped with its own reaction wheels and is totally hypoallergenic.
