 Post subject: Tri-Track + Lynx 6 Arm
Hy everybody,

My name is Andrei and i am from Romania!

This is may first topic/post here and i want to present you all my robot platform.
I am using a Tri-track platform with a Sabertooth 2x5amps plus an old Lynx 6 Arm.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k84ZY0CXg4 this is the video with the tri track working with a Futaba 10CG.

The maine question : can i power up all the servos for the Lynx 6 Arm with the power of the sabertooth. I am powering the futaba reciver from the sabertooth and if i connect some of the servos from the Lynx 6 Arm IT`s STOPING the Sabertooth.

The Sabertooth's BEC (battery elimination circuit) does not have enough current to supply servos. You must provide a separate battery for the servos.

Maybe run some off of the Futaba receiver?
