how can i get enough power to be able to control 5 servos with arduino

Use RC batteries and possibly a UBEC if the battery voltage is above 6v.
Consider the daffodil. And while you're doing that, I'll be over here, looking through your stuff.   8)

one other question about how much volts does it take to power 1 servo?

Do not PM me a question unless you are prepared to pay for consultancy.

i think i need to rephrase that question;:how many volts does it take to power 5 servos? THX XD

The voltage is the same irrespective of how many servos you are using - my "standard" servos can operate between 4.8V and 6V. Each servo will draw up to an amp though, so your issue is power, not voltage. i.e. that power source will need to be able to provide ~ 5 amps@6V or ~ 30W.
