Controlling servo speed only works for proportional servos. A "retract" servo is not proportional, but only goes from one end of its travel to the other when it's given a "go" signal. It's basically a two-position servo.

With the 14MZ, 12Z, and 12FG, you can set a speed, but that will set only how fast the transmitter modulates the signal from one extreme to the other. Once a retract servo gets its instruction to move, it will move with only its one speed.

If you are using a proportional servo for gear, then, yes, you can set the speed that it moves in those transmitters.

You will always find features in higher-end systems that are not included in the lower-cost systems.
