    Is it legal/possible to use a male to female USB extension cord to position a vexnet key away from the cortex?

    A USB extension cable may be used for the sole purpose of remote mounting of a VEXnet Key 2.0 to a VEX ARM® Cortex®-based Microcontroller.

  4. I've sent you pictures of my robot wherein my extension cable can be seen. It's totally legal.

    As long as you keep in mind the following:
    Your Cortex should be placed such that:

    1. The switch is easily accessible
    2. The lights on the Cortex can be easily seen
