Unofficial Answer to "Some Match Questions"

Sorry to interrupt your free time, but I have a couple of questions to ask;

  1. If your robot high hangs with a nonfunctional object that would droop down(when the robot hangs upside-down or sideways) below the top edge of the perimeter, would it still be considered high hanging? And if it’s not considered high hanging but low hanging, would the object be considered functional because it is match affecting?

If any part of the robot is below the top edge of the perimeter, it is NOT a high hang. It does NOT matter whether the part is functional or not.

After a few bit of competitions, I saw teams handing the 30 second cube to their robot that isn’t even touching a starting tile, but the cube is above the starting tile. Is this still legal?

***No, this is not legal. The robot receiving the cube must be touching the starting tile.
