It will fit, you just have to shave off the plastic edge of the plug that ensures correct polarity.

It is an standard futaba or "J" connector. Perhaps the sanwa/airtronics "Z" connectors fits better, due its slighty smaller width. Nevertheless, I have some Spektrum pro receivers (haven't received the mini form the mail yet) and the normal ones are compatible with any servo connector, like Hitec, Sanwa, futaba and so on... check with a servo instead the mamba, and ensure polarity position.

Just finished fiting a KO servo & Mamba Max to my 4x4 and apart from shaving the lug of the servo conector it all went very smoothly.
I had no problem inserting the Mamba conector into the micro (spektrum) reciever, where is it you're having a problem?

Oh yes, make sure of the polarity b4 you switch on though.

It's the JR connector. The Futaba connectors will work but you have to cut off the flang and bevile 2 of the corners to fit.
