Busted JR 7202 for parts...
I really do not know what happened tonight... Pulled my TX out of my case and the rudder trim tab was busted. I didn't notice until I turned it on and heard the constant beeping of the trim changing...

I've emailed JR support to see if I can buy just this piece from them, but thought I would also check here to see if anyone had a busted up TX they wanted to get rid of.

Shoot me a PM and let me know!


Edit: Found a great deal on a used TX in working order.... Best to have the back up :)

Contact Horizon and return it for service. It usually is back pretty quick. Odds are that the repair will cost you less (if not nothing) than a busted radio.

Nice avatar btw. I used to love riding my motorcycle on Skyline.

Thx.. I sent off the msg to Horizon already. I just don't want to be down a radio.. :D

I was able to CA the switch together last night. It works, just doesn't have that 'spring' feel anymore... I am hoping that Horizon will just send me the part - or at least sell me the plastic piece.

Getting a 'busted' up radio is almost twofold. I really like this radio and have no desire to upgrade to 2.4. Having spare parts around can come in handy :) I'm also watching for a new/used one that someone might be selling. I'll pick one up in a heartbeat at the right price just for a spare. :)

While found - I will post this...

Why would Horizon Hobby NOT sell a small plastic piece for this TX?? They say they have never sold internal parts for their TXs. What's up w/that?!?!
