I'm very excited about the class and will participate no matter what the rules are, that is for sure.
However, the quote above baffles me. How is that same pack going bad any different if it is powering the rx side of things? Your Rx pack can fail just as easily as any other. do you really think that just because your are drawing less current out of an Rx pack it is somehow immune to a bad solder joint, or shoddy workmanship, etc.?
