    Re: Team Update #5

    The MINIBOT is a part of the ROBOT (the other part is the HOSTBOT). So <R14> applies to the MINIBOT as well.

    From Introduction, 1.6 Definitions:
    ROBOT – the composite electromechanical assembly designed and built by a FRC team to perform specific tasks when competing in the 2011 competition LOGO MOTION. The ROBOT must include all the basic systems required to be an active participant in the game – power, communications, control, mobility, and actuation. The ROBOT implementation must obviously follow a design approach intended to play the 2011 FRC game (e.g. a box of unassembled parts placed on the FIELD, or a ROBOT designed to play a different game, would not satisfy this definition). The ROBOT includes both the HOSTBOT and one MINIBOT (ROBOT = HOSTBOT + MINIBOT).
    (emphasis mine)

    Team Update #5

    Section 4 - The Robot, Rev E
    <When a ROBOT is in its STARTING CONFIGURATION, no part of the ROBOT shall extend outside the vertical projection of the FRAME PERIMETER (with the exception of minor protrusions such as bolt heads, fastener ends, rivets, etc).

    Does this apply to the minibot also?
