This bug abuses the VEN mobile SCU to generate infinite force using trapped block entities. The attached save should demonstrate the bug quite well, as I built a fully functional SCU-powered flying drone with it (it's the Super RnD save). This was discovered due to some experimenting caused by my tech with a mobile SCU going flying every time it rolled over a big block and the SCU picked it up.

@Sai Wun I don't know who I should tag. Here you go.

MODE: Any (to my knowledge)
POSSIBLE CAUSE: The SCU applies a force to loose blocks to raise/lower them to its height. It experiences no such reaction itself, allowing for infinite force to be harnessed.
FREQUENCY: Every time
TO REPLICATE: Trap a (fairly large) loose block underneath a mobile SCU with a couple of gyros bolted on, or have a look at my save.
CHARACTERISTICS: The force increases massively with the size and mass of the block affected.

It's more manageable than the Hoverbug, to be sure. It takes up a massive amount of space for any useful lift, you fall out of the sky on damage taken, and isn't controllable when active. But it's still a bug, and I think it should still be fixed before anything is built around it.

However, if the SCU experiences a reaction, that could also be used to "magnetize" a tech to a big pile of trapped loose blocks. That could be interesting.
