Broken Toggle switches on Futaba T8UAP

I have several broken toggle switches ( the D/R switches) on my Futaba T8UAP. How do I replace them? What switches can I use that I can get from Radio Shack or a similar suplier that are not as fragile?

I am pretty sure they are soldered onto a small board.. Just sent it in and they will replace them.. I think it runs around 25.00... No big deal..

Tower carries replacement switches (or has, I've replaced a switch on an 8U before), but you will have to do some soldering.

Here ya go, this page lists the various part numbers for the different switches on the 8U. All you need to know is if it's Switch A,B,C, etc.
