Smash... please read everything twice before posting. He just said it's going through a regulator
i did! i thought he only meant he was using the regulator for the mcu as using it for the servos seems very illogical!
Ok... would you recomend just using 4 AA(1.5v) batteries instead?
yes, that would work, but are you sure you don't want to consider a rechargeable pack?
if you are serious about going into robotics you should get or make one! because buying all those batteries is a B#$CH.
you can run the board off one pack, but it may have the be a 7V2 pack... as some regulators need more than one volt above the regulated voltage to run.. so, in some cases it is better to use two packs... your choice...
