| In other words, connecting a battery pack can be done on any RX
Yup. Plug them into any channel. Use a Y connector if you have to.

Actually, two packs gives you a nice backup. One pack can fail (they
almost always fail open rather than having a cell short out) and
you've still got power.

Yes -- if you set up your plane with two NiCd/NiMH receiver packs,
you'll need to charge them seperately. This means two charge jacks,
and two switches.
