Teams should try to be careful with the Crew Payload and other Mission Models.

I know that some of them need repair as we move them from tournament to tournament, but most all of them (except the Craters) seem to hold up well under normal use and handling.

R11 says not to take Mission Models apart (and not to attach them to other things, except loosely).

If a Model comes apart in Base, the Referee will ask you to put it back together correctly.

If the Robot is Transporting a Mission Model, and it comes apart, what happens?  That might affect your team's score.  R17 says that, in the Referee's opinion, if a Mission was made possible or easier by damage to a Mission Model, then the team will not earn the score for the affected Mission.

Otherwise, you'll just make the Referee sad, because he or she will have to repair the Model when preparing the Field for the next Match.

We are experiencing a similar issue with the “Crew Payload” model from the Space travel
Mission. The astronauts LEGO pieces come off very easily. 

Will there be a penalty if the Crew Payload travels without the “crew” or, if the astronaut piece falls off the vehicle inside or outside base? 

Based on the current rules, it sounds like there will be a penalty.

Thanks,
Cedric

Hi Teams,
  there are three new Robot Game updates this week for you to look at.  None should be very surprising.

U04 -- yes, the Satellites are fragile, so let's recognize that
U05 -- in order to score on Crater Crossing, you have to have something cross the Craters
U06 -- the spacecraft in Escape Velocity needs to stay up at the top of the model to score.
