The Probodobodyne RoveMate is a part intended for use as a rover body. It can hold an electric charge of 120 units and offers large flat surfaces for easy attachment of other parts.

This part might be considered as some sort of battery although the specific energy is rather low with only 0.8 ⚡/kg. Because of the electric storage and base module function it acts like a command module with the actual controlling capabilities. Although it is intended to use for rovers, the forward of its command module looks towards the top of the body by the navball. It provides no torque.

To resolve the orientation issue, an additional control, such as a properly oriented probe core or Clamp-O-Tron, needs to be attached to the front-end of rovemate.

Product description

A sturdy housing for a robust probe and battery system - no assembly required! Thought intended as the body for surface rovers, we've been told by our most day-dreaming of engineers that the possibilities are endless! While it has a Stability Assistance System, the RoveMate lacks reaction wheels so bring some along if you want to hold that attitude.
