Final concept and explorations for the Inferno Squad Droid named DIO. First Imperial and then a re manufactured Rebel version.
The design was based on the seeker droid that appear the TV series Rebels. I did a lot of other explorations for it before ended up with this approved design. The ''tail'' was remove later in the production.
Since his size was small, compare to other Astromech design, we had to come up with an X-wing adapter for the 2 different eras.
