Default Ever heard a servo do this???

Its a Hobbico CS-150 MG digital servo. Is this how a servo acts with stripped gears? Sounds to me like theres more going on. Listen beyond the buzzing.

Yes, the gears are stripped or at least not meshing. I suppose it would be possible for a gear to have slipped off it's post, but probably a gear replacement is in order.

I sure hope that one or all of those don't do that in flight, I think I would consider looking around at other servos if that just did that just by turning the airplane on. Just saying...
