Default Module to slow servos down

I'm looking for a module to slow down some retract and flap servos. They hit so hard it shakes the plane. Need a more scale movement out of them. Saw a unit on Hobbyking and wonder if anyone has any experience or issues with them.

What radio are you using. I believe some can slow servo speed? Also you can get slow servos from hk, rather than adding weight with modules.

The Spectrum DX8 has this capability.

9xr does too I believe. Never have used it. If a radio doesn't have it, I'd sooner go to slow servos rather than connect a module. More weight and another place that can have a malfunction. Simple is better to me.

They work. You'll have to make custom female-female servo cables.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood.
