I'm building a robot and I'm using an Arduino to control 2 servo motors, modified for continuous motion, and other sensors.
My question is:
How do I power those 2 servos? Powering them with 5V from the Arduino connected to USB works fine, however if I try to power them with 4 AA alkaline batteries (powering only those 2 servos), they seem intermittent and unresponsive, and most of the time only one servo can work at the time. The connections are the same as they are for the Arduino I just replace the 5v and Ground from the Arduino, for those in the batteries.
Can anyone help me?
P.S.: Great forum and site
