Power for servo - can be used 5.1v instead?
There is a connector for 4 AA batteries which is marked as '6V only'. Can I use about 5.1V from the dedicated power supply (i.e. not connected to the main board), or that would be a way too low ?
  • You might be lucky. The small servos are actually designed to run off 4.8V, but I suspect the controller board has some voltage drop/regulation on it.
