Hi guys, Apologies if this is a dumb question - I've searched the forum for answers, but none seem to quite give me an affirmative yes or no.
I'm going to be driving 6 servos - (Hitec HS 645mg High Torque servos to be exact) Half the time only 2 servos will be active, but at other times 4 or even occasionally all 6 will be running for a short period)
I'm powering the system from a regulated power supply, set to 6V, with maximum 2.5A output.
I'm a little confused by weather I need a Motor Shield or not. Can I string all the servos off the same power supply, without a current limiter protecting each servo? - Just set the PWM line when I want the servo to actuate? Presumably the supply will give whatever current is drawn, and no more, so when only 2 servos are running, I don't risk burning them out? ....or do I have my head in coo-coo land?!
