Hi Marc

I'm a huge fan of the pseudo-SASS design. The DIY boundary array blog/list has 
some very interesting research. I have not found that any of the wooden designs 
travel that lightly. I have typically brought a screwdriver and dis/reassembled 
the head on location. 

For your FR2LE I highly recommend getting a battery pack with as high an 
amp-hour rating as you can muster. You won't be disappointed. Well worth it for 
traveling. The FR2LE was designed to take RC style batteries which are widely 
available.  it takes a little research to find what will fit and compare 
prices, but when you are in the Asian forests you will be happy you are not 
changing batteries.
