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.

Pololu components integrated

A few weeks ago, Frits posted a blog entry explaining that we were working with Pololu to integrate their product catalog into our Components section. It took longer than expected to wrestle Drupal into submission, but at last the integration is complete, and as you may have noticed on the front page, all of Pololu's 300+ products are now listed as Components. Feel free to browse around -- the cool thing about it is that all of those components remain editable by every LetsMakeRobots user, so you can post comments, tips, opinions, etc about any component you want.
