I think they are all the same thread size. I opened mine up, de-soldered the switch and went with it to radio shack and picked up a suitable replacement.

Are the switches soldered directly to the board or wired to the board? I just broke switches G & H when I dropped my less than 24 hours old Aurora 9.

There are little wires soldered to the switch. Easy fix.

As in previous post, wires soldered on. Make and use a DIY
. Bezel Wrench to avoid damage to case.

. Hitec - Switch Part Numbers - Replace Broken Switches.
