I read Rules 19 & 21 to mean that you may stack and transport from the
launch area, rather than having to build in the circles, and Rules 26 & 27
to mean that the robot is expected (required?) to return to home between
This actually leads me to a follow-up question - is the robot permitted to
return only to (& fully inside) home after each run, or may it also return
to (& fully inside) the launch area? I think the former.
