My team and I have a question about rule SG2
Robot expansion is limited once the Match begins. Per , at the beginning of a Match,
each Robot must be smaller than a volume of 18” (457.2 mm) long by 18” (457.2 mm) wide by 18” (457.2 mm) tall. Once the Match begins, Robots may expand, but no horizontal dimension can exceed 36” (914.4 mm) at any point during the Match. See Figure 24.
What is considered horizontal? For example say a robot were to tip over in the middle of the match yet continue driving, Would what was previously a valid vertical expansion size that was tipped to be horizontal be in violation of the rule? Or is the horizontal plane determined at match start and even after tipping over the robot won’t be disqualified for being expanded too far on what was the vertical plane.
I’d expect that the horizontal plane would need to be determined at match start so that a robot that tips and then self rights wouldn’t be considered disqualified.
