Broken Trim switch DX6I

Two months ago I sent my DX6I in for a broken trim swith,(throttle). Yesterday it happened again. Not wanting to spend $20.00 for shipping again, I opened the back and found the problem.Looking at the throttle trim switch I found the spacing where the rocker contacts the 2 button switches, the gap was too large for contact.
\
This is the second time this happened is there a more robust replacement trim switch available ? or how do I permanitely fix this one?

There is a solution. East R/C manufactures aluminum replacement trim switches AND aluminum roller menu button wheels for this radio and others.

I agree go with the Aluminum trim tabs from East RC, the store is actually right down the road from my house and they are great,honest people. See the links in the other post. Yes they are costly, but they will last forever and breaking the trim tabs is quite common. East RC makes those in their shop they do not import them so you probably won't find them any other places for the same price/quality.

This is a common problem. Fix it yourself and re-inforce the repaired switch with CA or Hot Glue It will hold forever!

Helicopter spins uncontrollably. Will not gain left.


bent shaft maybe? are the cogs engaging properly for both sets of blades? also check your trims are centred on your transmitter before you turn it on (if it has trims)
it looks like an infra-red controlled coaxial heli, but is hard to diagnose without knowing what it is. from what i can see, the top set of blades is spinning ok, but the bottom (counter-rotating) set doesn't appear to be getting as much power,
