Thanks... I told the client before we went to the range I wasn't promising anything.

I joke White Lightnings are cheap only because they don't pay super-models and rent Ferrari and set dressers for their advertising.
They just work.
Regarding the use of the radio slave in the video (I know the point was to sell equipment) butI hard wired my shot there is enough delay in radio slaves that I find I have to run the Hasselblad at 1/250th and Nikons at 1/160th when using a radio slave of any sort. If I had to shoot this jet situation, I would have went hard wire also.
This delay is mentioned in the instructions of most radio slaves I have used. Radio waves travel at the speed of light, but the signal processing on the chips is where this small delay comes from..
....impulse to trigger signal, to received signal, back to trigger impulse voltage takes a little time.
