Overview and Quickstart Video
Ship is for sale as BP only for 500K credits.
Note: The price is low and reasonable so everyone can have access to an awesome ship and promote new features and concepts. Sharing BPs on an already reasonable price is hurtful to us and the community.

--- Mining System Highlights ---
- Automated Asteroid Approach - ImprovedPID Profiled Motion Controller by Darkyshadow, the smoothest & safest automatic flight algorithm to an asteroid. More details and a manual of this algorithm can be found on my Personal Github: https://github.com/GameName-Darkyshadow/Starbase
- Asteroid Alignment on Approach - by Darkyshadow, helps to align the ship and keep it centered on the asteroid before and during approach. This is a new and never before released system that thus far is only found on this ship.
- Automine - Automatically engages the mining lasers and ore collectors
- Autopulse - Automatically monitors Generator Warmup and pulses lasers until power can fully sustain the 4 lasers at 100%.
- Mining Laser Oscillating Pattern or Fixed Pattern, User Selectable
- Long Range Scanners - Estimates asteroid size from up to 1000 meters away
- Automated Material Scanner
--- Navigation System Highlights ---
- 30 Waypoints
- Collision Avoidance
- Compass, Manual Waypoint Editing from Pilot Seat, Heading
--- Other Systems ---
- Realtime Speedometer - MoriWatari Cargolock method - Improved for 0.2s refresh, Works on the moon and outside ISAN range!
- Odometer, high accuracy, Works on the moon and outside ISAN range!
- Flipup Reticle - Just for fun =)
- Fuel Rod and Propellant Time/Distance Remaining calculated from Realtime Speed, Works on the moon and outside ISAN range!
- Status Display with Realtime Speed, Odometer, Safezone, Station Placement Ability, Ship Strength Factor, Durability
- Pitch and Yaw Trim, just incase you end up with a really uneven weight distribution that causes a slight pull in a direction while trying to fly straight. I haven't had to use this yet in all my testing, but it's there just in case.
Recent Additions: Refueling Station with Medium Tanks, Resource Bridges and Progress Bars on top of ship Backup Cockpit
16 T2 Chambers, 48 T2 Generators, 38 Batteries 18 Medium Propellant Tanks 56 T2 Triangle Thrusters 112 T2 Box Thrusters 32 Maneuvering Thrusters
NOTE: All bugs and issues in the original Rodan Free BP have been fixed. These include but are not limited to: ore crate bolting & mass issues, offset thrusters, thruster naming issues, minor flight control issues with reverse, offset propellant tanks, and structural issues at max mass. This ship looks similar but has been almost entirely redesigned and thoroughly tested. Feedback I've received thus far from many testers is that this is one of the most pleasurable ships to mine in because of how well all the systems work with each other and how smooth the controls.
Lifetime Updates and customization upon request. This is a design that I will continue to maintain with the latest community yolol improvements as well as my own yolol improvements.

Good and Sturdy ship, crshed into
Good and Sturdy ship, crashed into nox station lost front pilot seat, thruster and crates.
The extra seat and control on top saved my hauls and was able to take me ship back to origin.
AAS is good enough to stay afk while going to Z5 and front asteroid bumper does it's job pretty well.
The Rodan XL AA is absolute perfect ship -> I love it!
You built in so many quality-of-life-features, long range scanners, auto-avoid, auto-align, auto-approach, flight profiles and much more stuff ...
There's no other ship on the market with those features!
From now on my favorite ship, Really nice one.
Great ship. Paid for its self with one good mining run to the moon belt.
