    Comments about Profoto Air Sync Transceiver for Packs and Heads with Built-in Air:

    My Air Remote TTC and B1 were already rock solid and never miss a flash. So, I bought one of these to act as a receiver and run a Speedlite off of it. That way I could have a nice kicker light as a secondary source.

    It works fine. The only frustrating part is that the Transceiver did not come with any cables to plug into a device snd I could not figure out what to buy online. So it took a visit to my local Samy's Camera store to find what I needed. After that, everything was great! You would not have this issue when running it in Transmit mode.

    So, I really think the device is a 5-star product. The lack of a cable and delay in finding the right one was aggravating and a little more costly than I had calculated.

        I use this to receive on a pro six power pack to sync with my D1 500ws air kit monos, and works great. It comes with a sticky cold shoe that i put on the side of the pack and use mini pc. nothing loose, looks clean.

        Comments about Profoto Air Sync Transceiver for Packs and Heads with Built-in Air:

        Air Sync and Air Remote - what a great system. I use them both with Profoto gear and outdoors with speedlights and to remotely trigger extra cameras.

        I'd like them more if the bottom of them was flat instead of curved. It would make them much more secure when velcoed to other things.

        They're possible a bit on the fragile side too. The first time I ever dropped an Air Remote, 1/2 the little LEDs stopped working - had to pay to get them repaired.
