I notice that alternate power is recommended for larger servos- but the alternate power source ports were removed from the EZ-Board starting with v3. Can I still supply servos unregulated 6v power using this board?

In one week there will be a servo expansion board. I'm working on a line of EZ-Bits, which are peripheral expansions to the EZ-B. One is for servos to have their own power supply. Another is for Serial rs232 input/output. Another is for a sound module. And a few more
They are being drawn up right now - will be sent to the printers soon as we have free time
@DJ - "EZ-Bits" I like that name! Can't wait to see what expansions you've cooked up!
You can still run those heavy duty servos off the EZ-B _IF_ the battery pack can support it. When I use the Omnibot 2000 with moving arms and head running those servos - it uses 2.5 amps - according to my power checker thingy
