Have you tried to use this with octopi ?

No I haven't but I guess it would work. I'm not familiar with octopi but there gotta be a way to drive the servos thru some sort of interface.
If you do that, please post pics/code :)

You could also use the Raspi hardware PWM.
It got two pins for that so no need of an Arduino I used them a while ago... it worked flawless

I read about them but I'm too new with the Rasberry and arduino was quicker + easier to make at the time. When (and if) I'll get around to make something out if this, it's clear that arduino is out.
Ben Heck did a project awhile back where he used rasberry to control something with servos and he mentioned that it's better to make the rasbi drive the arduino that drives the servos. Reason was something to do with timing orsomething..

"WARNING!!: You will need to modify your Raspberry for this"

what are the changes?

You need to open up the pcb holes for 3mm bolts.
