<R8 note G> "Decorations that visually mimic field elements or could otherwise interfere with an opponent's Vision Sensor are considered functional and are not permitted. This includes lights, such as the VEX Flashlight. The Head Inspector and Head Referee will make the final decision on whether a given decoration or mechanism violates this rule."

Provided that it does not mimic any field elements, is it legal to use the vex flashlight to increase the consistency of the V5 vision sensor in driver control? If so, is it legal to use reflective or opaque non-vex components to project the light more accurately onto the flag? Thank you!"
