Default Servo Ticks about every 30 seconds?

My throttle servo will "tick" about every 30 to 60 seconds.
It has no pressure on it and will do this at forward, reverse, or neutral positions. It's almost imperceptable and probably won't hurt flying...

I've tried the same servo on different channels...still the tick. Other servos on the throttle channel don't tick.

An experienced friend told me it was because the servo was Hobbico and they occasionally had problems finding and keeping "center."

Any other thoughts?

Really, though, just sounds like a bum servo, as your friend suggested. You've isolated the problem to the servo, so I guess you're just asking everyone if it can really be??? Yep, it happens... too darn often, too.
