Default Servo Wobble

I am setting up an old plane with an old Conquest radio. I have a Fun Flyer that has a servo for each aileron. I am forced to use a "Y" for the ailerons. I am getting what could be describes as wobble by the servos- not synchronous and they tend to overshoot when released back to neutral. Not as crisp as the elevator and rudder servos. I also have a Fazer that uses a "Y" for the ailerons on another Conquest radio but they do not have this problem. Very crisp and follow the TX inputs. I am sure that some people have seen this before. Any suggestions? Also, the TX and RX batteries are charged. What is this problem called?

You have 'dirty pots' or more accurately, bad contacts on the pointenometer (sp?)inside the servo.
