Broken DX7 for parts... or Trim & 2 position switches


As the title says, I'm looking for a DX7 for parts... or just Trim & 2 position switches.
Please let me know what you have and how much it would be shipped to 91106.

Thanks for looking,

Be careful of a scam with this one. That’s an absurd price for a DX7.

You can get a very nice JR x9503 for $100-$150

Great suggestion Jetlink05. But I'm trying to repair or help replace a DX7 for a buddy. I have a JR 9x and liked it very much when first getting into sailplanes

I'll make a suggestion that I was given when I dropped my DX6 on concrete broke throttle gimbal.

Contact Horizon Hobby you'll be surprised at how cheap the repair will be, mine was less then $30.00, including shipping.

They replaced the gimbal, updated the firmware and back within the week, your mileage may differ!

Good Luck!

Best suggestion. I sent Horizon my out of warranty, 2nd owner gen 1 DX9. They replaced 2 broken switches, new faceplate, and upgraded firmware for cost of shipping alone. Highly recommend they take care of it for you, you'll have peace of mind it's repaired to specs.

The DX7 was based on a JR mechanical design - you might expand your search to look for some 72 MHz JR stuff as a source for parts like this - the 7202 would be one, there are probably others.

Thanks for the suggestions. It seems like Horizon doesn't have many parts for the older radios. Yes, some of the JR stuff seems to work

Thanks RCG. Ended up finding a JR XP7202 Trim Lever and it fit the DX7 perfectly!
