The Replica 1 uses two distinct power regulators that are not interchangeable and must be installed with the correct orientation.

This is beyond me, so Replica 1 creator Vince Briel and KansasFest attendee Paul Zaleski grab a soldering iron and a "solder sucker" to fix my mistake while I watch helplessly.
