Fabscan still instable - changing voltage regulator, adding second servo for second laser?

Hi,

as I still can't get my Fabscan runnign properly I'm going to change my switching supply (12V step-down to 5V) for the original Fabscan V7805-2000 (from Watterott). I hope it is just some inteference with the voltageregulator.
Can I figure out if the voltage regulator causes the problem in any logfile? Or in any other behavior?

And I wonder if it makes sense to order a second servo, as well (at the moment one of my lasers is mounted on a servo, the other one [which I still didn't connect] is mounted on a stepper).

So is it better to have both lasers mounted on servos or on stepper motors nowadays?

And btw. is it timo to connect the laser's motors? until now I had them disconnected, as the firmware didn't support it's movement :D

Why are the lasers mounted on a servo? So with the Watterott set, the lasers (2 are supported by v0.9.4) are firmly mounted, as far as I know.

When I bought the kit (it wasn't the full kit, as I had many party already here) it was common to mount the laser on the servo (which was included as far as I remember).

In thie time it was unclear if the project would use steppers or the servo for better results.
So what's the plan for the future?

In the new version there are no such servo-driven lasers. I remember darkly. I created a thread with pictures for this. But he's already 2 years old. The forum looked different then. Now I don't know where he is anymore.
