Greg, the noise of the servo is normally down to the drive train (plastic makes loads of noise) so maybe try a servo with metal gears?

I know you're correct, but it always seems funny to me that plastic is noisier. I think some of the noise with the man is the slow speed of operation. I had to drive the servo sort of 'one step at a time', for the drinking action, with a small 30ms time delay between. Anyhow, that's my explanation. :shock:
