Small drills good - large drills bad

    Hi Guys, have adapted my Red Ship (Easy Start Dev - survival mode) to be a heavy miner.

    Firstly, cannot get the 5x5 drills to attach, so resorted to a bank of smaller drills but they don't pick anything up.
    They don't progress into an asteroid and when I reverse away a great spray of debris is ejected from the rock face.
    I've tried conveyors, tubes and small containers behind the drills, non having any appreciable effect.

    My small block miner works like a charm

    Any advice, criticism or lecture that can alleviate my problem would be much appreciated.

    I take it that the 5x5 drills are a mod? Are you right clicking to get the drills to work? That is the destruction mode rather than harvesting. I have to ask because that's usually the culprit.

    Have you checked the bug reports for drills? Even if the drill isn't connected to a conveyor system, the cargo space inside the drills should still be filling with ore.
