Hi, i want some suggestions on my project. I would like to use remote control (infrared), 3 servos that will moves in different time. Which shield should i prefer, Quad Motor Shield or Arduino Sensor Shield ? And can i combine that item without using shield (ex. Breadboard). Thanks before.

I don't think you connected the grounds, Dave.

I don't see that you need a shield at all, but make sure you power the servos from a separate power supply.

What is the "it" that may mess up?

You can drive the servo signals directly (assuming we're talking standard R/C servos) from the Arduino, using the Servo library.

It depends on how neat you like your work to be, or how neat it needs to be.
For a small number of servos, I'd probably just glue the connectors together side-by-side to make it easier to bus the power, and run individual signal wires to them.

Or you could get a servo extension lead for each servo, chop the plug off the 'receiver' end and connect the wires to your Arduino and power supply using the appropriate plugs. This would give you a flying lead for each servo that you just plug it in to.
