I went to Radio Shack, and although they did have micro and sub-micro switches, they had nothing like the TX's switches with the longer poles, 3 position, or spring loaded. Where can you find them?

You will have to order them from Hobby Services (Tower), or Radio South. The switches Futaba uses are Futaba specific, no other switch like it on earth...at least I am not able to find. I did a very exhaustive search a few years back, with a wealth of electronics catalogs at my disposal and came up empty handed. For one thing, the switches have a non standard footprint. For another thing the shaft is a non standard size also.

They are not that difficult to replace if you are a confident at soldering.

Hobby services no longer sells the switches outright. They did a year ago, but no longer.
