Thanks y'all! That answers my questions.

here is a 5volt 3.7 (4 amp) for 6 bucks... All Electronics
GDG, do you think that the 4 amp is enough for the motor? I know Scary Terry recommends 5 amp or better. I will probably have some fairly good loads on these motors. Of course at $6 a pop I can afford to experiment a little. Thoughts?

depends on the draw. I am using 4 windshild motor props. two of them would be ok (hangman and my version of a trashcan trama -
) the third was creating a problem regardless till i put on a counter weight to reduce force needed to lift the lid. (see below) the the fourth was too much load (the standard kicking guy
). . putting it on a battery charger (not a perfect solution) and watched the amp gauge spike. I agree with the connector comments. As I have been used a couple of computer power suplies and taking advantage of the Harddrive power connector as you can see in the coffin/box picture below. this year I'm working on a swing arm to make a person sit up in a coffin using a WW motor. I'd really like to use air, but in my small area, the compressor is just too noisy. you'll see more here when I get it done.

good luck
