infrared power

I thought there was a rule that prevented any other power source from being used on the robot. I saw a picture of a robot the other day that was powering their infra-red controller from a external source…NOT the 12 volt KOP battery or the back up battery…
It looked to be a 9volt battery or something of that nature

This would be against the rules, and the infracting team will have to modify this. I believe I saw the picture in question, and I believe it was mentioned in that picture’s thread.

If someone could PM the link to that picture, I would appreciate it. As stated above, the only power on the robot is the main battery or the backup battery.

I have already notifed the team of the possible rule infraction…
