Two switches on my 8U have been broken for a while now... the two top right hand ones... one is a long 3 pos and the other is a short 2 pos.

I have replaced them with some cheapies, but they are getting dodgy..

Does anyone know where I could get original replacement in Australia?... at a reasonably price?... I have seen them once.. for $57AUD each! .... I am simply not prepared to pay this much for a simply switch!

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

G'day mate. The same happened to me. I got genuine replacement switches from the Futaba importers - Toy Traders for like $8-10 each a few years ago. Dunno how much they're worth now.

They're in Sydney, give 'em a call on (02) 9749 1733.

Btw, have you joined http://www.archeli.com? It's a new forum for Aussie pilots & we discuss events plus help each other out with stuff like this.
