      Very seldom does the elaborate gadget appear in the cradle at the royal chamber. I'd say about 1 out of every 8 save/reloads. (15%)

        My favourite farming route: chapter 16-01, transport to City Ruins: Near the Tower, climb the tower's ladder, glide from the top to the arch structure; transport to Forest Castle: Royal Chamber, turn left and reach the King's cradle. Repeat.

          After I finally finished the Pod upgrades, I was just at the oasis catching fish and I got an elaborate gadget under a palm tree.

            Encontré un dispositivo cerca de la ciudad con el escáner inmediatamente después del aterrizaje en la ciudad durante la ruta B, estando en ciudad centro nos movemos con dirección al árbol gigante sobre los edificios, con direccion a donde se forma el agujero gigante por la explosión de los Engels en capítulos posteriores./I found a device near the city with the scanner immediately after the landing in the city during the route B, being in center city we move towards the giant tree on the buildings, with direction to where the giant hole is formed by the explosion of the Engels in later chapters

              Both quests listed here apparently give 5 and not just one, so you get all you need right there. Seems pointless to farm from the spawn points when you can just wait till your third playthrough and do these quests.

                En el bosque, hay un campamento de robots, después de un rato curioseando con el escaner, encontré un camino que me permitió subir por encima de unas roca y obtener el arma "pesar virtuoso", a mitad del camino hacia esa arma, usando el escaner pude obtener este material.\
                In the forest, there is a robot camp, after a while browsing through the scanner, I found a path that allowed me to climb over some rock and get the weapon "virtuous grief", halfway to that weapon, using the scanner I was able to obtain this material

                  For those attempting the Royal Chamber farming route: I found that if you kill the 4 enemies that spawn in the antechamber before heading to the cradle, the drops get progressively better e.g. crystal --> gold ore --> simple gadget --> elaborate gadget, which is how I got it in about 5 reloads.

                    Transport/travel to Forest Castle: Royal Chamber.
                    If already cleared the game, pick chapters after A2 kills the forest king(that infant)
                    Its replaced by a harvest point that gives gold ore, simple gadget, elborate gadget. Once you get it just save and reload, rinse and repeat since it wont spawn elaborate gadget everytime.

                      Found one using the dynamic scanner on the path to the Virtuous Grief in the Forest. It is in the center of the path before you jump to the area where the Grief is located

                        Guys, easiest way to get this:
                        Change difficulty to EASY and equip those auto chips. Play the hacking game in challange mode. You won't die with these chips. Beat all 48 stages, and the reward inclues all 3 tiers of this gadget type material.

                          Can confirm that the spawn point near the tower works on route A/B as well. It's very random though, anything from a simple gadget to a gold ore.

                            You can get an elaborate gadget to spawn by starting the Wandering Couple quest in Pascal's Village (since it's a quest requirement), but only if you don't already have one in your inventory, it seems. I need 5 elaborate gadgets to upgrade my missile pod, but I have no idea how to get more now...

                              There's one elaborate gadget near the city ruins: tower access point. Just use your pod scanner near the little river near the bridge leading to the commercial center (and to the forest kingdom).
