Unfortunately, the pridopia servo hat has a 1.6 amp limit which is only able to operate the hexy whilst it is supported in the air and there is no load on the servos.

If the hexy is not supported, the pridopia hat can not supply enough amps to power the servos. A separate power rail will be needed to power the servos.
