If it's a digital, they tend to make more noise the analog versions.
Also if the control rod is causing a bind or the control surface is stiff it can cause servo noise.

So in that vein, I don't believe the FAA's right to make me register, so I won't.

If the FAA can say a law doesn't apply to them, then why can't I do the same?
