Default slow moving micro retract servo ?

I have an align trex 500 with an align airwolf fuselage....... I'm currently using a turnigy servo slow down regulator on an align 410 metal gear servo to get the wheels to take about 4 seconds to deploy/retract as per the tv airwolf..... this set up works fine unless I land slightly awkwardly then the wheels can be pushed in slightly whereas if I used a proper micro retract servo it would lock the wheels but so I've read a retract servo cannot be used with a slow down regulator so just wondering if anyone can recommend a slower moving micro retract servo If they're is such a thing ? I cannot slow the servo using my tx as I have a spektrum dx7....... any other solutions appreciated ? Thanks.

Most newer retract servos are programable , meaning you can use a servo programmer to set the speed , travel , ect. not the Tx.

The only drawback to these type of servos is the price usually and the fact that you will have to buy the servo programmer.
