Default Exceptionally Noisy Servo

I've got a KoPropo PDS-2365 ICS and it is super noisy! I mean it sounds like a deaf guitar player tuning a broken guitar loud. Should I just dump this thing and go with an airtronics.
I'm using a Spektrum receiver.

BTW this is in a Mugen MXB-5 prospec

I just had my hitec hs 5945mg go out on me. The guy that I got it from said that the loud noise that it was making is because it a digital servo. Well the noise got louder and louder till it locked up. Now I got the airtronics 94358 and I love it.

well i am not as familar with KO-Propo as i want to be. but yes digital servos are VERY NOISY. doesn't mena it is bad just loud. yes also some lower brand digi servos get loud then go out. well you get what you pay for. of the guys i know runnig ko-propos they have had no problems and some of those are pro sponsored guys. so take it ofr what its worth to you. but i think you are ok, and if its does go bad well at least you got how ever much run time out of it you could.

Is the servo noisy while at rest (neutral)? or is it noisy when moving back and forth. I have 5 ko servos and they outperform all others in the long run. I havent noticed abnormal noise by nature the digital servos are very noisy compared to analog servos.

The servo is noisy any time the wheels are on the ground. if I pick the buggy up the noise abates.

Sounds fine to me. The wheels are putting a little load on the servo when on the ground making it sing! This is common just ignore it and go have fun.
