Since astroneer added cameras recently, I was think of ways to get good aerial shots and views. This is my solution.
Can be controlled up to a certain distance away from the player. Can be accessed from a field shelter or a habitat. Has 4 tier-1 slots, in which you can put mods or resources in. (Be sure to also put a small battery on it)
You can take photos with it from the air, or maybe even make videos with it!
The drone would also be able to drill surface resources and dig up hazards. It would also be able to research consumable pods. It could also be used for scouting ahead the best path, and maybe even place down items like tethers or beacons!
