Answered: Laser alignment

Is a small handheld red pen laser allowed to help align a robot to a stationary point on the field during initial setup? The laser would not be attached to the robot during any of the skills runs or match play.

Yes, this is legal provided it is done in a safe manner. (i.e. Don’t point the laser in someone’s eye!)

Are aligning devices allowed during repositioning on the starting tile of a skills run?

No, any sort of alignment devices that are not a part of the robot may not be used at point during any type of Match.
