Hey Guys.. broke my 3 position flight mode switch last night.. called Horizon and they refuse to sell me the switch..instead they want me to ship the TX back, pay for them to replace the switch, and then pay the shipping home. So..my question is, anybody know where I might find a 3 position switch? Would a Futaba switch work?

Thanx!!!

Check out your local Radio Shack!! I know you can replace Futaba switches using their switches - not sure about the DX7 though...

I had the same thing happen on a 9303 and I robbed a switch from an old realflight controller I had laying around, its worked great ever sense. All the switches I've seen in the radios are Jewel switches (name brand) and the DX7 is just a spin off of the 7 channel JR, so I would say they are the same. Yes, you can get 3 position Jewel switches from Radio Shack.

The electronic stores like digikey.com have them. I recently replaced a Futaba switch with on from them and it so far it seams to be higher quality.
