Ceiling of the Base

Last update on 2017-09-01 by Christine Widmann.

Is the ceiling of the Base valid for every start?

The change under 1.6 for 2017/18 says “Maximum equipment height UPON LAUNCH is now limited. (R13)”

At R13 launch and re-launch are regulated – the ceiling of the Base (12 inches/30.5 cm) holds for every launch – that means: Also for relaunches during the Robot Game.

This new rule is only formulated for starts, so for returns to the Base holds rule D07 (2nd item “no ceiling”).
