Default ow common are dirty pots on the TX

Crashed today becasue of the TX.
During a few past flights on my beater 500, it seemed to have the throttle interrupted quickly, and then started working.

A week later, tried another heli, and it did the same thing.
Following week flew 4 batteries, and it was fine.

Acted up again today on two heli's so I am sure it is the TX.
I did order a new DX8 Gen2, but wondered if there is a common problem with my DX7 that I could try to fix (like clean the pots) if that is common.
Everything happens so fast, I can't say if it is a particular channel, but today's crash was additional channel...not just throttle.

Thanks,

Dan
