Default How to slow a servo on a 9cap super?

I want to simulate some realism on the flaps of my jets by slowing the servos down. How is this achieved with a 9cap super?

I put the flaps on the slider switch. Servo goes as fast as my fingers allow it to.

yes thats what I currently do..but having them on a switch and yet let them move slow will be cool.

There is a delay function on the throttle channel. Connect the flaps to the throttle channel, and the throttle to another channel. You need several P-mixes, depending on how many flap settings you need:

Flaps UP or DOWN:
1) THRO-THRO rate -100%, to remove throttle from channel 3.
2) THRO-AUX2 (example), to assign throttle stick to channel AUX2.
3) OFST-THRO, to assign flap movement to a switch.

Flaps UP, HALF or FULL (requires extra channel):
1) THRO-THRO -100%
2) THRO-AUX2
3) AUX1-THRO, assigned to 3-position switch.

I did this with my Flyin' King, and it works fine. The only thing that is tricky is to get the LINK and TRIM settings in the mix menu correct. If set up correctly the throttle trim lever next to the throttle stick will control AUX2 (or whatever channel throttle is remapped to) and not CH3.

I really like the slow flaps. The only downside as far as I can see is that any elevator correction programmed together with the flaps will NOT be delayed. The plane might jump slightly. I solved this by putting the elevator trim on Vr1, to gradually trim down as the flaps were lowered. Took a little practice, but worked well.

If it's not possible to do it on your radio, or if it's too complicated to do, then you can buy proper devices that plug between the receiver and servo that slow the servo down to a preset speed.
Some models even have an adjustable time.

Heres one I found after a quick look, they are 3/4 down the page:
