Default Question about compatability

I have tried a search, perhaps I don't know the correct terms to search on?

Anyway, here is my question:

I have a Futaba 2PL AM Radio/Receiver and a Tamiya TEU-101BK ESC.

The battery plug on the ESC (JST?) doesn't appear to be compatible with the RECV.

How screwed am I, or is there an easy fix for this?

It looks like I could shave the plug a bit to get it to work, but I would prefer to not have to do that.

The ESC has a built in Power Switch and the RECV came with its own. The ESC's appears to be hard wired, and I am not really equipped to just swap plugs.

If I understand properly the small tang needs trimmed off, but make sure the polarity is correct because it can then go both ways.

Thats what I ended up doing.

I called Futaba to make sure I had the right pin out, and all is well.

I was actually able to remove the pins from the switch that came with the controller as well as the ESC, however the pins we not compatible with the other plug. [][]

So I shaved the JST Plug down.
