Are you asking if you can use Lego pieces that were out on the field, like
mission models, that the robot has brought back to base, to then position
the robot for the next time it leaves base?
And then, do you mean, can you use different positioners at different times
the robot is in base?
You can use anything you want to position or aim the robot as long as it is
made of Lego parts and as long as it fits inside the volume of base. And,
yes, you most definitely can use different frames to aim the robot for
different missions. Lots of teams do this. You can only touch the robot
when it is in base, but in between, while the robot is out on the field
performing it's jobs, the team members can be moving things around in base
and getting set up for the next time the robot comes into base.
Hope that helps!
