Default Electric/Servo Noise? New 230S V2

I received my new 230S V2 yesterday in the mail. Skimmed the manual and gave the heli a quick once-over to make sure everything was secure.

Got ready for the maiden flight a few minutes ago and as soon as I plugged in the battery, I started hearing a loud static noise. It sounds electric in, but can't tell if it's normal or not. Previously owned a 200 SRX that I flew tons and don't recall hearing this.

Servos all appear to be moving the swash assembly normally, and the 230 was hovering fine (maybe a little twitch, but it was really windy out).

I took a video of the noise and was hoping someone could tell me if it's normal.

Sounds to me like normal servo movement, but I’m no expert. I have an Oxy 4 that did this like crazy. It got better after I sized my ball links.

Do you have a ball link sizer? I recommend one.

It's pretty normal for them to buzz a little bit. Even my V1 did that until I upgraded to KST215 servos. Then it went away. The V2 still has the stock H3060's until one starts flaking out then they all go too.

Thanks all! Looking forward to flying this chopper once the weather clears up.
