Default WHOA !! Slow Down Retracts* Bang* OUCH **

Any body , Any Ideas , On How To SSLLOOOWWW Down a set of Robarts Air Retracts ?? []
Here is my setup " # 622-5 Mains, A # 160WC-LH Tailwheel Assm. , Ultra Precision UP2 Valve,
A Ultra Precision UP4 Secondary Gear Door Valve, A very LARGE onboard Air Tank .
All this is in a Top Flite 1/5th Giant Scale P-51 Mustang, Also working Inner main gear doors And Tailwheel doors Too..

Both the UP2 and UP4 Valves Have " speed control needle valves" , But STILL TO FAST !!!!! ( BANG< OUCH [sm=cry_smile.gif] )

I read Some where on a thread to keep the air lines equeal lenght,
Tried slowing down the Servo , but that Screwed - up The Sequence of gears to doors.

Any Ideas ?????????????????
Thanks ,
Mak K.

If you adjust the valves right, you can slow the retracts down to a crawl.

Terry is right; you have to be persistant, but the ajusting screws on those UP sequencers do work, and like he said, you can adjust them to a crawl, I use one on a warbird and with a little adjusting got them to slow down to where I wanted it.
