I tried using a diode (replaced the red wire in image). The voltage went from 5.01V to 4.95V
You can add a small diode to the 7805 ground like below to up the 7805 output voltage to ~5.7v for better servo performance.
I thought the idea was that adding a diode would increase the voltage at the 7805 around +0.7V?
