I received this quesiton today and I haven't seen the specific answer.

Teams can only recover their robot and receive the touch penalty a total of 5 times. But if a robot was brought by had to the start zone from the safety zone (not receiving the penalty because they met the requirements), does this count toward the 5 or is this unlimited?

The limit is in the number of touch penalties a team is allowed to accrue. If an action does not incur a touch penalty, then there is no limit to the number of times that action may be performed (so long as no other rule would prevent it).

In the specific case of Rule 5.0.10, there is no limit to the number of times the robot may be returned to the Robot Start Zone (without a penalty) so long as all conditions of Rule 5.0.10 are met.
