A version of the exsisting Pack Power Armor with expanded flight capability.
In YE 39 Heram J. Wazu was working onboard the YSS Eucharis Plot. Due to not being enlisted in the Star Army of Yamatai he did not have access to the mindy, instead using his own personal Voidwalker Suit for operations. While this was suitable for most tasks, it was not capable of space flight or of keeping pace with the mindy power armors themselves.
Instead of purchasing a power armor, he decided to augment his own suit. To resolve the problem of space flight and deployment he would add additional propulsion systems to his Pack Power Armor, turning it into a drone system that could move the weight of himself, his suit, and equipment.
The PPAD is a rectangular pack with various hookups on the back, and radiator panels on the bottom for heat dissipation. Two mechanical arms on either side can extended outward, and contain the system's engines, which can be positioned with respect to the center of mass of the drone. There are also two sensors positioned at the top of the pack.

The Pack Power Armor Drone has all of the same capabilities of the Pack Power Armor.
It is also equiped with a pair of Wz-G3802 Small Optical Sensor sensors on top, a gravity control system, and thrusters. These allow the drone to fly in the atmosphere as well as move about in space. While it is not as manuverable as other power armors, it has a respectable straight line speed. Cargo, or a pressure suited individual, can be attached to the harness section of the drone and held in place by the drone's own force fields. This allows the drone to drop off its payload and wait or resume flying to survey an area. The drone can follow basic instructions, but is usually remote controlled as it does not have space for a full AI.
While the thrusters have vectoring nozzles to provide control while in flight, fine tuning of low-level flight can be achived using force fields and gravity control so as not to disrupt the landing area.
