13 – PLANE LENIENCY AND OBSTRUCTION

*This update does not apply when the robot has knocked the plane's rollers off the cord.

If the plane departs and hits nothing, it automatically scores as reaching LT BLUE.  If that plane stops short of LT BLUE, the referee pushes it the rest of the way to that zone asap.
If the plane departs and hits only "a little bit" of stuff on the runway, it will automatically score as reaching YELLOW. If that plane stops short of YELLOW, the referee pushes it the rest of the way to that zone asap.
If the plane departs and hits "a lot" of stuff on the runway, it stays and scores where it stops unless the robot pushes it to a zone.
"A Lot" of stuff is defined in the referee's judgment as an amount that would DEFINITELY have stopped any plane (even a fast-rolling one) from scoring at all.  Anything less is "a little bit."
