Could this also be used to stop a servo from buzzing? I have a HS5085 that likes to chatter at center.

Possible that the dead band is incorrect so yes maybe resetting it or changing it from the current value might help

Yes this can help - on my 72 even all the adjustments to the deadband wouldn't fix it - a lot of 3d guys I know use the fuzzy side of some stick on velcro to add a little resistance to the surface at the center - this paired with proper deadband usually does the trick...I know I saw a tutorial on it either here or 3drcforums....but its a great way to fix a very annoying issue

as a side note - once you take off and get that air flowing over the surface it does the same thing so this is really only a ground taxi issue and it really won't hurt the servos much (assuming you set them up properly) - for me I always seem to have 1 or 2 that make some noise - as long as none of them are over amped anywhere in their operating range then it really is just a wee bit of noise...

hope it helps
