Default Outrage 9180 servo "catchy" noise inside

My Outage 9180 servos arrived yesterday. If you turn them by hand, one of them is silky smooth through it's entire travel, while the others feel/sound like there is something 'catchy' in the gears. They all work fine when plugged in. Is this normal?

I didn't realize that in mine. Then again, I didn't check. I did move them and I will do that again and report back.

I had the same issue with one of mine and helidirect replaced it.

Hmm, that's the problem living down under. Return postage is about $50 each way, and there's no guarantee that one of the replacements won't have the same problem. They work fine, but the issue will be when folding the blades back cause they do seem to catch, and a little excess force is required to keep them turning. Maybe they'll come good over time.

I find it very common to have servos sound like they are full of sand when moved by hand. I even had a set of MKS Brushless sound that way. I am also one who believes the Torq servos are made by MKS.
