How did R2D2 even rescue the Queen's ship?
First of all, in a realistic portrayal, R2 would be shot into space the second he stepped on to the exterior of the spacecraft because it was MOVING.
Second of all, R2 could not fix the shield generator and dodge plasma shots at the same time.
Third of all, EVERY droid was shot except for R2D2.
Seriously, George Lucas really messed this up.

The movie does imply that his rollers are magnetic allowing him to stay stable on the ship. He was in space so there is no wind resistance and his velocity was tied to the ships, so his magnetic footing only has to account for acceleration from the starting velocity.
He did not dodge anything. He either got lucky or was protected by the force.
