Your mission ends when the platform stops above the device. This means that the battery must be on the platform when it stops.For the final action, if the platform raises above the machine with the freestanding battery and then the battery falls off would that still count or does the battery have to remain on the platform after it raises above?
1. Read the FAQs from 10/15/182 questions:
1) For the final action, if a magnet were to be placed under the platform which helps keep the battery upright on top of the platform, would that count? Or would that be considered “not freestanding” or “attached to the device”?
2) If we use a touch on a scorable action, will that action still be counted for points?
This was answered more satisfactorily in the FAQs last year. However, the consensus is that as long as the electrical action triggers the next action before 10 seconds have elapsed, you won't incur any penalty as the first action will have completed. You are certainly welcome to turn off electronic components after their completion per the FAQ on 10/5/18.Hey all, might be a stupid question, but for the actions which we can use electricity for, do we need to find a way to turn them off afterwards, so as not to be penalized for the more than 10 seconds electrical timer if it remains running (even if not still doing the task)? I remember something like this being discussed last year. And if so, how would one do that if we can't use programmable circuits with timers?
1) Yes, electricity is legal in the final action.I have a few questions:
1) can we use a motor to lift the final action platform?
2) if so, can we put it above the box?
3) if 2) is true, will it count towards the height limit?
