Mining Guide 2.0 – Mining Drones (Limpets)

This is a quick video to get you ready to use mining drones. I’ll try and break it down as fast as I can. Links mentioned in the video are listed below.

    Great video, but I needed to know where to buy limpets. I found them shortly after in the Advanced Maintenance tab.

    I tried buying ammo (limplets) but it showed I have 100℅ ammo even tho My limplets doesnt apear in my cargo hold

    I have a type-6, i was looking for collector limpets, but only found prospector limpets. Do you know if I have to go to specific system to get the collector limpets?

    How do you get limpets??? It always says I’m out of ammo

  5. XGreenThumb on October 16, 2021 at 8:45 am

    I got the Black too. I was wondering about your config for a MK IV. Trying to make a hybrid mining, delivery, bounty ship.

    Thanks for the very well made video, finally we can enjoy mining in Elite without having to scoop scoop scoop lol.

    Where do you get limpet ammo I’ve been lookin for three fucking days and no video actually tells you where to get them

  9. RIOTx 420 on October 16, 2021 at 9:02 am

    This is the best and most straight forward mining video I’ve seen yet.
    Exactly what I needed to know.
    Thank you !

    I’ve just started mining in a Hauler and have bought a collector control system, but if I want to deploy the limpets it doesn’t do anything, no matter what mouse button in which firegroup i press, do you maybe know a sollution?

    For all the hate mining gets, I’m amazed the keep putting work into expanding it and refining it. No pun intended. I love mining, and these limpets?

    I haven’t’ played for a year. That’s about to change. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, sir.

    I don’t know your intent to do more episodes like this but I would like to strongly encourage it. In a game like ED there is SO much info to deal with that clear and effective tutorials like this are incredibly helpful. Accurate Subject Titles, No Needless Chatting filler narration, On Point Info, Clear Video Examples. Add a few "Bullet Point" lists now and then, a couple Cuts to related info possibly found in one of the Maps or SubMenus and maybe a couple external vid shots of the Ship in action just for "looks" and I bet you’ve got yourself a really solid Series. Keep it up sir. I hope to see more.

    Do the collector limpets auto replenish themselves?

  14. Juegos Wün on October 16, 2021 at 9:12 am

    thanks for a clear explanation 🙂

  15. echothreealpha on October 16, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Out of 5 videos I’ve looked at on limpets, this is the first one that clearly describes whats going on and the uses of each. Thank you!

  16. Nae Catalin on October 16, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Where station I can find this plz ?

  17. Strikeslip on October 16, 2021 at 9:16 am

    Clear and concise video, A+. Would recommend!

    I’ve read that it’s a good idea to fill up your refinery to 100% before returning to base (when your cargo is full of ore) because after you sell off the ore, the remainder in the refinery gets processed and placed in your now empty cargo hold. Free extra space.

  19. ziplock9000 on October 16, 2021 at 9:18 am

    3:11 How are you able to open your cargo scoop when your harpoints/mining lasers are out? It wont let me have them both at the same time and it’s a pain?

  20. Steven Mullen on October 16, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Good info and straight to the point

  21. Fast And Night Furious on October 16, 2021 at 9:29 am

    How much do limpets cost

  22. Mr Random on October 16, 2021 at 9:30 am

    Is there a way to tell the collector drone to pick up only certain materials? Gave my first try at LTD mining and while I did pick up some LTD’s but it also went after a bunch of other cheap stuff… Couldn’t even collect enough to to fill up one bar so it was useless because I couldn’t sell it and all my collector drones suicided so it wasn’t even worth keeping the stuff because if I went to restock and came back the first ship that scanned me down would’ve canned me.

  23. Af brenden on October 16, 2021 at 9:30 am

    But where do you buy ammo to the drones?

  24. Rh0dan1970 on October 16, 2021 at 9:31 am

    ok I am late to the party but THANK YOU for making a vid that is clear and to the point!
