So iv’e seen some great robots so far in this 2016-2017 Starstruck season. There is a rule that i am very concerned about and have a question on. In Section 4 <R18> is says that a robot may have 12 motors that can be used WITHOUT a pneumatic system. A robot that does have a pneumatic system can only have 2 pneumatic. With that being said, I have seen some other teams that use pneumatics, but use 12 motors. Can you be disqualified or fail inspection? There were some rules in the past with 12 motors and pnuematics, but this year is different.
This is illegal.
