Problems with TowerPro SG90 servos and Pololu Mini Maestro 24

Hi all,

I am in the process of connecting up 18 Tower Pro SG90 servos to a Pololu Mini Maestro 24 controller to complete my build of a Plen 2 (Custom redesigned to fit the above servos and allow space to carry the controller).

I am using an adjustable power supply that has voltages of 3, 4.5, 6, 7.5, 9 and 12vdc.  The label says that the output is 300mA 3.6 VA max.  I am suspicious this could be my problem detailed below.

mini maestro coding help needed

I am working on a project that has more to do with flying robots, i.e. quadcopters etc. and I am optimizing the propulsion systems, i.e. brushless motors and propeller combinations.  I have a full data aquisition test bench to gather the data that I need, but the thing that would be really nice is to control the electronic speed controller(s) using a mini maestro.  I have gotten the mini (12 channel) to run some of the basic programs in the manual, but I need some more complicated programming help so run different sequences by pressing a switch or flipping a toggle.
