I'm in the process of building my first animatronic bucky skull using three (3) Futaba S3004 servos and the Parallax USB controller. At this point, I think I know enough to be dangerous, particularly when it comes to supplying power to the servers.

I know the board needs DC power, so I'm assuming that I can power it with any AC/DC power adapter that supplies around 4.5-7V's, but does it matter how many Amps?

It also appears that the card will need 2 wires screwed into the power, so I'm assuming that I should cut the plug end off the power supply and strip the outer coating to reveal the red/black wires and then strip each wire so they can be "inserted & screwed" into the board. Is this correct - or am I out in left field?

Thank you. One of the designs I'm modeling my project after uses a 5v 1000mA power supply for 5 servos, so I'm still a bit confused about the Amp requirements, but it sounds like if I get something around 3 Amps I should be OK.
