What happens if I drop my robot?

Dash, Dot, and Cue are pretty resilient and should survive minor falls. Dot is even designed to sense when it's dropped!

You don't want to hurt them though. Make sure you don't drop the robot on the floor, especially hard floors like tile. Robots are tough but a hard drop could damage them.

Dot's drop action should be a drop and catch as shown in the pictures below, with at least 1 foot drop height. The robot's gyroscope and accelerometer won't detect the drop if it's too short. You can take the stand off to make it easier to catch.
