DX6i pot


Hello,
i had teh same problem a while and could not find a 5k pot to match that used in the DX6i. I ended up sending it in to horrizon service center and they replaced all the POts for free since they were deemed bad quality.
If you have a service center close by, i recommend sending it in. if not, i suggest you try and unbend the pot slowly untill you get it to a satisfying working condition.
DO NOT remove the pot. they are very fragile and almost impossible to fix if you end up opening it. And since you can't find replaacement, ......
good luck

thanks I appreciate the reply.. prob is sending a Tx in it's box it's 30 euro to go + 30 euro to come.. and it won't be fore free since this is the US version of the Dx6i and I live in europe.
maybe maybe if I go below 2kgs in the package because this is lighter than my dx8 I will pay around 50 euro for shipping..
still too much. I will try to bend it back as a first measure. ..

I have an Turnigy 9x that I screwed the pot up trying to clean contacts. I think it uses the same pot. I have been keeping my eye out for replacements. Please, if you find a replacement pot, post source.

I dropped my dx6i and now the throttle doesnt work either, everything else is in perfect condition. Thinking of selling mine to buy a Turnigy 9x. I can sell you mine but the problem is I'm traveling and won't be back until end of Aug. By that time if you haven't found replacements yet then let me know. I'm in Montreal, Canada.

On the Turnigy, the pot did not have threads. It is held in place by a retention clip. Is the DX6 the same or different?
