R5-D4's blown-out motivator

A motivator was a type of device found in R5 series astromech droids such as R5-D4,[1] GNK-series power droid such as EG-30,[2] and starships such as the Millennium Falcon.[3] If defective they could blow out explosively, potentially sabotaging the entire droid.[1]

The droid R4-G77 also had a motivator.[4]
