Default RE: DX6i switch replacement

Ok opened it up and:

All the switches are Single Pole Double Throw (SPDT) but they ALL can be Single Pole Single Throw (SPST). They are all super easy to solder and nothing is on a circuit borad or anything like that.

I had to use the stock 6i retaining ring on my Radio Shack switch because the Spektrum retainer ring is recessed. It fit the new switch with zero issues.

That switch in your link looks like it will work but the toggle is going to be short like all the other ones.

Tower does have a long toggle switch that might work too. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1497119

This is the one I used and could be used on any switch other than the flap switch because of toggle length http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...rodsPerPage=60

I dont see any long toggles on their site though.
