Whoops!
Broken dx6i trainer/bind switch..

So I broke the trainer/bind switch off of my dx6i. Horizon wanted me to send it in but thats not possible as I would be without a radio for my mcpx and I am fully addicted to it at the moment Anyways, is there a way to switch the button used for the bind process on the dx6i? I can still use the switch with a screwdriver but was just curious.

Second question, anyone know of a replacement? I have searched and searched but all I have found are switches for the gear/dual rate switches and was unsure if it would work for the trainer.

Thanks in advance!

Any small spring loaded momentary toggle switch will work.

Radio Shack or Electronic store should have some.

Thank you!

Does it HAVE to be spring loaded? I am just wondering.. Couldnt you just turn the switch to off? I am off to radio shack to see if they have any as they are not answering the phone lol.

Spring loaded much better, it prevents you from having to think about turning it off when you buddy box but hey it's your radio.

Ok they didnt have any spring loaded switches for some reason.. I hate to ask at the risk of seeming lazy but can someone provide a link to where I can order one? I dont want to get the wrong one and have this go badly lol.
