The RC-L01 Remote Guidance Unit is a command module built for unmanned Rockomax/Size 2 rockets.


Designed to be placed anywhere in a large-diameter stack, the RC-L01 Remote Guidance Unit provides full command module functionality.

It consumes almost twice as much electricity as most other probe cores but provides three times as much torque and, like its smaller sibling the RC-001S Remote Guidance Unit, stores significantly more electric charge than most, as well as lasting for >80 hours in hibernation from a full charge with no power input. It can also survive for 833 minutes (or 13.8 hours) off of the Z-4K Rechargeable Battery Bank

Weighing half a ton, it is the heaviest probe core, but it is still lighter than the lightest manned command pod.

It is one of a few high end probe cores that can collect, store and transfer experiments in the same way as an experiment storage unit.

If attached to a ship with a pilot, this ship will be able to control probes or rovers without a connection to the KSC.

Product description

A larger version of the popular RGU system, developed in partnership with the Rockomax conglomerate.
