<R18> - Pneumatics

The rule states…

Robots Robots use one control system. Robots may use a V5 Robot Brain, up to eight (8) V5 Smart Motors, and pneumatic components.

Does this mean a robot can have both 8 motors and pneumatics. In previous games your could have 8 motors or pneumatics and 6 motors. Has this changed this year?

There are already numerous topics on this! Use the search bar! (Although the pneumatics topic was so recent that it probably doesn’t even warrant a use of the search bar!)

yes this is correct, you may use pneumatics with no penalty.


Anything that happened in previous games doesn’t matter today. Use the current game manual for the current game rules.
