Yes, that's prefectly legal. You just can't at any point advance on the fairway to place on object to give you a frame of reference.

The application of the rule is primarily for blind shots where maybe you want to set your bag or something on the ground to give you a reference point to aim for. The reason it's illegal is you're actually modifying the course ahead of your lie.

A mini with an arrow does not violate that rule and certainly gives you no extra advantage.
