Default Modification of throttle cut switch DX6i

Up until now I've only flown electric planes, and the throttle mix switch never bothered me regarding its location.
Since I've started flying my MCPx, I can't understand why the throttle cut switch, while longer, was on the very top. I had to take my fingers off the controls to reach it.

I opened the case, removed the nuts holding the switches in place using a very small, flat screwdriver to "spin" them out, and swapped the location of the switch with the rudder D/R switch. Then I used a VERY sharp razor to carefully peal the stickers off, and move them. I tore one sticker, so covered it with clear plastic tape to hold it in place.

Now the throttle cut is in a location I can easily reach with my middle finger without taking my thumb and forefinger off the right stick.

Photos attached.
