Hi Kathleen, 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 each run. 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. Thank you, Ben Clark Panda Cubs 38690 On Tue, Sep 17, 2019 at 9:02 PM Kathleen Olowin <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > My team has a question about the units used in the Mission 12's design > and build.
