Chattering indicates its moving tiny amount back and forth very fast ... or is it just buzzing ?

Chattering where its moving a tiny amount very fast about the desired point is indicating worn servo and poor ability to stabilise ...

If its buzzing - then that usually indicates a stiff hinge or servo is finding a bit of resistance to its movement.

To decide which it is can you do this simple test ?

Pick any other servo on the model that is accessible ... you do not remove it ... just power up the models radio side and then put a finger on the servo and just give it a little push against the arm ... you will hear it BUZZ as it fights to stay put. If its that sound you are getting on your 'bad servo' - then check the freeness of travel of the hinges ...
