Default Aurora 9

This is probably the most insignificant question ever asked on this or any other forum. I have two Aurora 9 radios, one a straight 9 and one a 9X. On both transmitters, the eyelet for the balance strap is horizontal but I saw one on the trading forum in RCG today that has the eyelet situated vertically. It looks really strange having looked at mine so many times. My question is whether that eyelet can be rotated or if the radio has been produced both ways at different times? If so, why?

Default Mine is horizontal

On my Aurora 9 it's horizontal and does not move.

Should both be horizontal to allow for the neck strap balancer to be mounted to it. It's just bolted in place with a nut on the other side, it can be rotated.

Is that shrink wrap on some of your switches? So you can tell which switch you've got your fingers on? That's a good idea.

Yep shrink wrap color helps me tell what function each switch operates. I have 2 older Eclipse and 2 Aurora’s as well as a Spectrum for bind and fly and a Airtronics I won in a draw. All the switches are in different places so Landing gear will be one color and flaps an other so at a quick glance I know exactly what switch is what. If I have a proportional or rotary switch I like to use that for flaps and will color it the same as the shrink wrap I use on my other radios.
