Legality of Proprietary sensors for V5

G’day everyone, I was just looking at legal non-vex parts and saw somewhere a vague suggestion that you can use 3rd party sensors as long as they are powered by a legal vex power source and are connect via and exterior port to the brain. Does anyone actually do this and if so, what parts work. Figured it would be a good way to save a buck lol.

There are really no “vauge suggestions” in the game manual. (https://link.vex.com/docs/2022-2023/vrc-spin-up/GameManual )

In regards to your question, the VEX-U rules allow for 3rd party sensors (see VUR-10). If you’re not in VEX-U, then you must adhere to the requirements of R-6.
