Usually there is only a problem when those materials are vibrating against each other, so it may only affect you (if at all) under power, but it can also pick up static electricity from the atmosphere and produce an RF signal. It would be a good idea to do a range check (with a partner securely holding the RP, of course) with power applied to be sure you aren't going to to lose control. Or, you could swap one of the materials out for a non-conductive material.
Thanks for the heads up!!
