Need part # for Hitec Flash 5 replacement trainer switch

Does anyone know what the part # is for the Hitect Flash 5 trainer switch? I'm going to be placing an order with for some components to make a switchcraft charging plug for my next project, so if someone can tell me the Mouser product #, I can order it at the same time.

I was recently out flying my bungee launched 1-meter sloper when my daughter accidentally stumbled over my Hitec Flash 5 TX (which I had foolishly set on the ground while retrieving the sloper from some tall grass). My daughter stepped on the trainer jack switch (2nd from the left along the top of the TX) and completely bent it to the side.

The switch looks pretty bad and now it flops around in its housing (but it doesn't seem to have any other mechanical or electrical problems). Still, I'd prefer replacing it with a new trainer switch just to play things safe.

I'm not sure whether mouser will carry such a thing as a spring loaded switch as it's quite uncommon. You can either desolder one of the wires and insulate it thus disabling the switch or call Hitec USA (858-748-8440) and get the switch from them.

You want a "momentary contact toggle switch". They come in all sorts of sizes. Alco is one brand that mouser sells but you'll have to check the dimensions. I think the idea of getting the replacement from Hitec is the best idea.

BTW - RatShack sells the parts to make that switchjack - might save you some shipping.
