the source is shorted and everything stops working
not the servo power supply and arduino grounds are connected.
note the servo power supply and arduino grounds are connected.
how do I connect these capacitors?
It could be that interference generated by the servos is resting the arduino or even the power supply. If so you need to add some large capacitors across the servos, something like 100uF or larger.
I don't think servos make much electrical noise,
QuoteI don't think servos make much electrical noise,Yes they do, we get this all the time on this forum. In a RC situation the reviver is adiquitly protected by the manufacturer, an arduino has only minimum supply decoupling.
