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!

Thx!


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..

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?!?!
