Hans Miller replied to Josh Winklepleck's discussion Help me understand servos?
"Because the power supply that feeds the APM will not supply sufficient current to both the APM and the servos at the same time. Once the demand from the servos comes on, voltage can drop enough to "brown out" the APM, thereby killing your…"
