Are all Savox servo's this annoying???

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So I'm using some Savox micro servo's for the rudders in my F-18 and I can't believe how annoying noisy these things are. Yes I realize digital servo's buzz but holy bloody hell. I figured I had the geometry way off but after screwing around with them for a solid few hours, am assuming that's just the way they are.

Anyone else had the same experience?

Re: Are all Savox servo's this annoying???

that's the nature of digital servos......they always try to center themselves....if there is any load on them, you will here buzzing. If you disconnect the rudders, the buzzing should stop.

Normally this is not a big deal, but Savox servos can suck a lot of power out of your batteries. Put a power meter in series with them to see what they are drawing. If anything more than a few milliamps, you might have issues if you leave them in there.
