Slight correction (but very important nuance): R02 and R03 apply in the competition area and not in the PIT AREA. You can have as many controllers and motors in the PIT AREA as you like. For each match, pick your favorite subset of everything in the pits and bring it to the competition table while ensuring you did not bring too many. As we have mentioned already, you do not have to bring the same subset to each match. For some teams, it is the same. For other teams, they mix and match for various reasons.

Make sure that your team understands R03 applies to all of the equipment in the pit area.   If they want to have two attachments, each with its own motor, then each of those motors 'counts' toward your limit.

Not for the same match. Read [R02]. You are limited to ONE Controller (AKA”Brick”) in any particular match. You can change robots for different matches if desired, but each match has to be performed by one robot. You can always reconfigure that robot with different sensors, motors and other LEGO parts, as long as you meet the requirements of [R01 through R06 and the size limit of R13].

Can the team use 2 different robots for different launches?


Thanks,

Absolutely, as long as you do not exceed the maximum number of motors [R03] and don’t exceed the maximum robot size for launch/relaunch [R13 and D07].

Hello there,


My team has two arms designed for two different missions.  They wanted to know if they could have one arm attached to one motor and the other arm attached to another motor and then just plug in the correct arm when it is in base between the missions.  They are just trying to save time between the two missions.
