If you cant find one you can send it in.If it broke where these type ant normaly a break 2.5mm screw can hold at least 1/2 of it together till a new one arrives,if you can find one.a rush shipping charge to horizion will not help. It will take the same time(1-3 weeks) for return.

lol,sorry vtec...i was in your shoes earlier this year when my 2yr old ripped mine out while i was trackside gettin ready to run.......needless to say my day was shortened....i was too.

anyhow the 3r has a coaxel type antenna , sent the radio in to horizon and they replaced it free. downside was it took 6-7 weeks to get it back and my 3r settings for my 3 vehicles were erased completely.... had to re-set up everything...

it also made me go buy a radio case

I’ve been using mine for the last 6 months with a temporary fix (electrical tape ha ha!). Horizon said to expect a 4 week (or more) turn around. That was a deal breaker since I only have one radio.

I notice they sell replacements for their aircraft radios, but not their surface radios. It's unfortunate, because I opened the radio up to check it out and it would definitely be an easy replacement for a DYI’er. Until then, I will continue to get by with the electrical tape.

Is this similar to the one on the DX3R?

Nice find Cory! I scrolled down the page a bit and found this link

DX3R Replacement

I've never bought anything from RC Mart before, but at $10.90 I'll definitely give it a shot.

I just ordered one from them for my Spektrum module for my M8. Note that they are in Hong Kong... so shipping takes a while... but they are cheap on shipping too. BTW RCMart is "Dinball" on Ebay. Good folks to deal with.
