Original Optic 6 problem

I have an Optic 6 which I like very much however it has recently developed a problem. When the throttle stick is moved upward, nothing happens until just before reaching the center of travel. At this point I get approximately half of the servo travel (or half throttle when connected to an ESC), next two clicks will produce another ten percent or so of travel, and the next click with produce the remainder of available servo movement (or throttle response on an ESC). The balance of stick movement does nothing.

I suspect a bad potentiometer on the throttle stick. Is this transmitter worth repair or should I just toss it and buy a new transmitter?
