    I just looked at my Dreadwings today and I suddenly realized he has two cockpits ? Now that made me wonder, why does he have that ? does he have a secret mode or was he intended to be one of the "Seekers" ?.
    His 2nd cockpit is revealed in robot mode in his chest above the turbine-lifting fan. To me it looks like a "sunken" cockpit canopy, but perhaps it's something else ?

    I just always thought it was to emulate the tradition of airplane TFs having cockpit chests.

    I think it's purely to have something there in robot mode. If there wasn't a cockpit there, you'd have a grill, turbine or something, which wouldn't have looked as good.

    How does the drone transform in the game?

    Is that supposed to be the actual cockpit on the chest? In that case, it's simply another case of a "doubled" alt mode part in robot mode (like the fake truck windows on Voyager Prime's chest, or the fake wheels on the sides of Deluxe Jazz's wheels) because the toy designers weren't able to do a more accurate transformation.

    Shame the drone in the game has such a great robot mode and the figure should not have gotten past the prototype stage.

    OK, couldn't see if the inner spot was/is black or green on this screen.
