The HFE 'Dartmoor' Planetary Miner is a light (30 - 40 ton) atmospheric miner designed for high reliability and low cost. It is powered entirely by Batteries, agile enough to handle unusual flight angles at full load, and requires only the basic resources available upon landing on a new planet.

The Dartmoor is designed to do one thing well, and that is to gather resources on planets. It can easily lift its full cargo volume and remain airborne at odd angles, making it significantly more forgiving to fly than other atmospheric miners. It automatically ejects Stone on request, includes running lights for operating underground, and can pick up salvage up to and including a crashed copy of itself. Once docked to a basic installation it can recharge its Batteries and be ready to fly again. The vehicle will never exceed its maximum power rating while maneuvering and doesn't require advanced materials to build.

Aside from that, the only notable feature is that it works with the HFE 'Shiba Inu' Cargo Rover once your production needs exceed what a single Dartmoor can provide.
