Exactly. I also find I have to round out the top of the plug. If you look at a Futaba plug, it is a rectangle, but JR has rounded edges on the top portion of their plug. This is JR/Spektrums method of introducing a bias into their plugs so you don't plug them in the wrong way. I just use a nail file to round out the the top of the plug.

This is only necessary for the receivers that have a plastic enclosure. The smaller RX's that only have the pins sticking out dont need to have the rounded corners, but I believe you will have to do this to make them fit your AR6200
