The Probododyne HECS2 combines a command module unit with a 1 000 unit battery and 10 Nm torque reaction wheel. This simplifies construction by incorporating the three parts into one. It's also one of a few high end probe cores that can collect, store and transfer experiments in the same way as an experiment storage unit.

Usage

This module functions as an unmanned command module used for small-sized satellites, although its hexagonal core extends far beyond the radial size category, taking up a lot of space when also factoring in it's height, making it the biggest probe core by volume.

The cost of the HECS2 (7,500Fund) is greater than the cost of buying the smaller RC-001S Remote Guidance Unit, a 1 000⚡ unit battery (Z-1k Rechargeable Battery Bank) and more powerful 15 Nm reaction wheel (Advanced Inline Stabilizer) separately. However, with the mass calculation, it's better to buy this part instead of the separate parts.

Product Description

A larger probe core based on the popular HECS design With integrated battery banks, specialized flight control, and a built in reaction wheel, the HECS2 is a suitable probe core for more advanced satellites.
