Big Six uses thermometer-RCS hinges and docking ports for movable S-foils with working engines.

Features:
- can takeoff and land with “repulsorlift” engines.
- contains a VTOL-oriented probe core for easier hovering.
- can toggle S-foils between cruise and attack position. Attack mode is more stable during forward flight in atmosphere, but cruise mode is required during takeoff and landing.
- mounts an “astromech” parachute which is mostly decorative. It may assist a repulsorlift landing, but it will not ensure a safe unpowered landing.
