I have the RoboPi board from Mr. Henning, and a Raspberry Pi 3, and I am going to power the RPi3 from a rechargeable micro USB power pack. The RoboPi (as far as I can tell) gets its power from the RPi, which would be 5V.
The new Parallax 360 servos look like they need 6 - 8V to run well from the specs. So is the best way to do this maybe purchasing a 5 AA battery holder from Parallax and then power the servos from that and not draw from the RPi/RoboPI power source?
Thanks for any tips.
My goal is to hook the lidar up to the RPi and have the Propeller chip on the RoboPi do the servo motors and other sensors.
