If I didn't want to power the motors via the batter pack what parts would I need to power from a wall plug?
Hello, Joe.

If you want to power your Maestro from a wall outlet, all you need is an appropriate wall power adapter:

From there, I recommend using our DC Barrel Jack to 2-Pin Terminal Block Adapter to connect the power to your Maestro:

Thank you Patrick, I also got additional info from a question in the forum:
https://forum.pololu.com/t/how-to-power-12-channel-servo-with-one-supply/18108/3
Is there any info on how I can add buttons or dials to control the servos similar to the video shown above?

Thanks,
Edson
Hello, Edson.

You can see how to connect buttons or switches in the "Attaching Servos and Peripherals" section of the Maestro user's guide. Additionally, you can find multiple example scripts for using inputs with servos in the "Example Scripts" section of the same user's guide.
