Default Where to get a potentiometer to replace one used for trim in JR 652

Gentlemen:
I will greately appreciate any advice on where to find a pot (potentiometer) to replace one in my JR XP652. The problem with it is that the throttle trim isn't working at all. When I took the TX apart, I discovered that (unlike the cheap entry-level radios), JR used a pair of pots for each channel--one is connected to the stick, while the other is kontrolled by the trim slider.

My call to Horizon's Tech Support didn't help--they don't sell separate parts; instead, they suggested to send the whole TX to them for a costly repair.

There should be a place to order a potentiometer of the right size. Could you, please, suggest such a place (local RadioShacks don't sell anything suitable).

Thank you,
Boris
