This is actually something that's on the list, since it is a valid use
case, a set of power servos like bls451 would for sure overload the
power supply. The actual implementation depends on the space
on the PCB. We are currently considering multiple options as it is not
easy to fit all this in. One of the options is to power the servos
directly through one of the servo ports. It has some issues, since
the power rail for servos is also being used further by other

The plan is to sell fully assembled boards.
