Intermittent 'buzzy' noises

There are occasional noises from Marty, who is on and charging at the moment. I suspect this is reaction to the motion sensor - perhaps a note that this is normal would be a good idea.

If I'm wrong, then I'd welcome suggestions.

Yeah, we'll add a note to the FAQ and probably also the troubleshooting guide about the buzzing. It is just a normal artefact of servo motors, we have some code on Rick ("Buzz Prevention") that tries to minimise it but there will still be some buzzing. If Marty starts making a ringing/alarm sound instead then the motor is being overstressed, but purr-like buzzing is fine
