Adding more servos= more boards and more power

Crucial to using more than one board with firefly is adding an additional open port and using the list component to isolate each COM port from the arduino. Using multiple boards prevents crashing and having to reset the ports.

The next step is to use an external power source to power more than 4 servos and possibly getting the two arduino boards to talk to each other, with one sending the information to the other.
