If Daniel hadn't seen the hole in the shuttle, causing Hot Rod to fire... Would the Decepticon's plans to sneak past the "early warning systems" have worked?

A literal plot hole?

YES!!!

It actually gets worse. If Daniel hadn't broken his "rocket board," then Hot Rod wouldn't have picked him up. And then Hot Rod insists they go up to "Look Out Mountain" where there are binoculars so Daniel could actually see the hole in the shuttle.

Effectively deconstructing a series of coincidences that led to surviving the initial assault.
