yeah, they are. if you can solder a bit you should be able to do it relatively easy.

I have changed broken switches on my DX5. It's doable, if you are careful with your soldering.

It was easy! I heated my gun up, undid the solder joint on the 2 pins, the original solder stayed on the wires, then just touched the gun to the original solder on the new toggle pins, and done!
