"So for the Solar Panel mission, I cntlaiery don't think it's as easy as the Bone mission, because it requires a more complex attachment, even though it has a similar required amount of accuracy."IMO, In no way did the bone require anywhere NEAR the amount of accuracy the Solar Panel needs. Many teams approached the bone from one of the sides, allowing for a great amount of leeway. Most of the (few) failures I observed were from teams approaching from the end and not using well developed alignment devices, or using mechanisms to deposit the bucky ball that imparted too much speed to the ball during the delivery. I asked several teams that failed how long they had been in FLL and ALL were rookie teams.Approaching the Solar Panel is quite a bit different. The robot will be placing the panel on the roof from a distance and so any degree of mis-alignment at the robot will translate into non-miniscule linear variations at the roofline.Accordingly, if we could gather statistics, I'd be willing to bet that a MUCH higher percentage of teams successfully performed the bone mission than will perform the Solar Panel mission.
