Default Airtronics Digital Servo Noise/Problem?

Hey Guys,

Something that I have noticed and that has been pointed out a lot at the track over the last few months is that my digital Airtronics servos are really loud. I can be on the drivers stand before the start of a race, all cars stopped waiting for the horn and you can totally hear my steering servo buzzing and no other cars are. Both of my Airtronics servos do it, i believe they are 94758's but i will check when i get home. Is this normal or should i send them in for service? I had a really bad glitching day last week and am just trying to narrow it down.

Thanks,

Blake

My Futaba servo does the same thing. I figured this was just normal for a digital servo.

Yes, it's normal for digital servos to make the beeping/buzzing sound...

It is normal for digitals to buzz. I had a problem with my Airtronics 94757 causing my TC3 to glitch.

I changed the servo and the glitch went away. Obviously the fault of the radio. Useless advice.

My problem was a year ago. I was trying to tell the starter of this thread that I too have had the same issue.

The second part of my post about (Obviously the fault of the radio. Useless advice) was a sarcastic remark out of irritation from the people that think that changing my radio is going to make my digital servo stop buzzing or my car stop glitching even though I had a defective servo. I have just gotten sick of that kind of advice. There are literally thousands of M8 radios in use, which is what I have. Instead of somebody like Chill who says try changing the servo, you always seem to have the idiots who tell you get another radio. I am not a newb by a long shot, but one of these morons is going to end up scaring a newcomer out of this hobby thinking the radio he just got now needs to be replaced with an even more expensive one.

I am probably overreacting to this, but for 5 years I have seen people give the same stupid type advice and I finally snapped.
