    Would anyone happen to know of any continuous rotation servo that will operate at or around 3V? Thanks for any help you can offer.

    An R/C model servo with its feedback potentiometer removed will do that.

    You generally also have to replace the pot with a voltage divider and remove any mechanical stops which prevent free rotation.

    I've looked into doing this in the past, although I've not done it.

    Here is a page which details the procedure: http://www.seattlerobotics.org/guide/servohack.html
