The Probododyne HECS2 is a large, unmanned command module, with a powerful internal reaction wheel, large internal battery, and built-in experiment storage unit.

Product Description

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

The Probodobodyne HECS2 is one of the most powerful probe cores. It has the electric capacity of a Z-1k Rechargeable Battery Bank (1000 ⚡) and the torque of two Small Inline Reaction Wheels (10.0), as well as a built-in experiment storage similar to that of the Experiment Storage Unit. This simplifies construction by incorporating the four parts into one.

The HECS2 functions as an unmanned command module used for medium- to large-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 500Funds) 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.
