You were right Zoomkat.  I hooked up an external power supply and it worked.

So I followed this guide on youtube:


The problem I'm seeing is that instead of going from 10degrees to 170degrees at the specified time I get:
The motor jerks every second even though I said every 10 seconds.  It jerks forward the whole time until its reached its limits... then it does nothing else. 

The motor is a "TowerPro MG995"
According to this spec: http://robotbase.en.alibaba.com/product/461190134-211878901/Tower_Pro_MG995_Servo_Motor.html it should work fine with 5volts.
