IDK. If you aren't testing it and your device breaks, then I have no idea.

However, when you're testing it and if it falls/breaks, then yes you are DQ'd. But if the event supervisor/assistant(s) tips it over, then they'll probably let you pick it back up.
What's with the small words?

no you can't. It can't be powered by counterweight.

huh, I don't remember seeing that in the rules.

I think you can have a counterweight if you attach it to your trigger...
