The car's prism-like body sits on top of tracks powered by a motor connected to a battery that is accessible by the car/drone’s motors. A rotary blade shovels regolith onto a conveyor belt that transfers it into the drone's regolith container. All of this uses only one motor. The robot can only dig while it’s moving. After the dirt has been dug, the drone disconnects from the car and flies up to space. It now transfers the soil into a container within a spacecraft orbiting the moon, which deposits it at its desired location. Solar panels are placed above the drone to create a solid flow of electricity. It can transfer this power from its battery to the cars at any time. Thrusters are pointed inwards to siphon off any regolith that would otherwise deplete its only source of energy. A personnel on the ISS will drive-fly it around.
