I was not able to find the skybox flipper sensor board 11001182 anywhere.  I had to go to plan "B" and repair it and decided I would post how I repaired mine for the next person looking for help.  I repaired mine by removing the flipper sensor board and replaced the Hall Effect switch (looks like a transistor) with another one using part number A3213EUA-T (google it.  Its also available on Amazon funny enough).  If you are handy with a soldering iron this is an easy fix.  On mine the circuit trace near the screw through hole on the circuit board was also damaged so I soldered a wire across it after scraping it clean. I then coated everything with black silicone glue to help keep the moisture under control and put it back in.  Works perfectly.

Thanks for the write-up.  It's good to know there's a cheap and easy repair for this if I ever run into it. Got any pictures?
