Gears and Robot Interaction

Can the gear be in the robot at the initial point of pickup at the airship or will that result in a penalty??

Can you clarify your question? To me it reads like you want the ROBOT to pick up a GEAR at the AIRSHIP. Which is not what the game is about.

I believe they are asking whether the gear can be lifted while the gear is in contact with the robot (i.e. pulling the gear out of the robot)

If that’s what the OP is asking, take a look at this thread.
