wiring design

I sat down at my PC and worked up this design using Microsoft paint.
I know for a fact that this is a fairly silly design, but I wanted to get the most out of my power sources... which is why there are 4 different power setups.
Click on the image to get a better view of the design.

The Vex is maxed on motor/servo ports in this design, so if I want to add more servos I will need another Vex controller.

No pictures of the AA frame and wires tonight. I'll try to get something different posted by the end of the week.

Nice work on the diagram.

To add more motors/servos you could try a Pololu Micro Serial Servo Controller

The Infa's what will they be used to control?
Have you put any thought into maybe something like this instead of the Vex batteries.
Kinda expensive, But I like the control you have over it.
The servo I was using for the dome rotation, I'm going to change.
I'm using the actual motor from the satalite assy. (Bet I spelled that wrong.)
Where are you mounting your batts.?
Nice drawing, I need to plan mine out like that.
