Yes but you'd have to include two separate solar panel modules in the part. If you're trying to get them to rotate together I suppose you would want to have the child suncatcher's solar panel module set to not rotate.

Nope at the end i need 2 axis and 3 rotations, but can work with 2 rotations too but if i can add 2 suncatcher is the best way, i have do some experiments and the core seems work

 

 

I can start to model 1 panel and the body and after see if it can work with 2 solar panels

Can you post a picture of your Unity hierarchy for the part? I'm not sure I understand.

Probably now you understand better, the cockpit rotate and the panels rotate for get the best position vs sun

2 axis and 3 rotations :)

The only problem i have to add 3 actions for the same part.

Ah! Very interesting part. So is the one solar module a dummy to get the rotation on the vertical axis?
