To figure it out, check out the official field drawings here:

Start with page 46, which references all the diagrams used to construct the minibot tower.

From the sensor to the floor it is 122 inches.

Of course, the platform at the bottom is 12 inches and the deployment line is 18 inches above that, so technically if you get the minibot right against the deployment line it will only have to travel 92 inches.

I’m not sure, but everywhere i look i am seeing 10 foot.

the top is at 122 inches from teh ground. the cylinder is 12 inches off the ground. the deployment line which you cant deploy the bot above is 30 inches off the ground.
