Default adapter question

I just bought a FMS Kingfisher PnP plane along with a Spectrum AR610 receiver. Got it assembled and was about to install the receiver and found the leads from the servos are slightly different from the sockets on the rx. Any suggestions? My first attempt at this sort of thing.
Thanks

Different in what way?
Plug shape, wire color?

the receiver sockets have two rounded corners for orientation, the FMS plugs have all square corners and are slightly (.006") wider and (.010") longer so they don't fit even if I round the corners. wire colors are similar to spectrum

Sorry I don't have any experience with FMS servo plugs.
Most servo plugs are at least compatible. You have to trim the little ridge on Futaba plugs to use them in a Spektrum, but at least they fit.

Futaba plugs need trimming for most other Rx's as well as Spekie.

Pal of mine loves FMS models and I never heard from him any comment about plugs ... he definitely didn't use FMS RX ...

Thanks for the replies, I did find out the solution, seems the plugs do fit, just very tightly and being my first time doing this, I didn't want to push too hard and break something. FMS's answer--We know they are a tight fit but they won't come out accidentally.
