A Drone Component acts as an unpacking site and home base for one drone-type bot. Moving a packaged drone into a drone slot will unpack the drone and allow it to function. Moving a drone back into the item inventory will repack it, allowing it to be transported and reassigned.

Each Drone Component has a register for a target entity, commanding its drones to fulfill context-sensitive orders. Each model of drone has a certain range around their Drone Component within which they can work. A drone no longer in range of its parent, or which leaves the reach of a Power Field, will immediately return.

When a drone docks inside its home it will empty its entire inventory into the parent unit. Any excess will be dropped onto the ground around the unit.
