With the Quantum Instruments CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller you can control a studio full of flashes from up to 300' away from the hotshoe of your Nikon camera. Not only will the CoPilot trigger them but can adjust the lighting ratios of up to three independent groups of flashes. Instead of poking away at an LCD screen Quantum gives you ergonomic, tactile dials that you can adjust without looking at them once you get used to their functions. The CoPilot is compatible with current Qflash TRIOs and T5dRs as well as older versions and any non-Quantum flash that can be triggered in Manual and Auto mode only by a FreeXwire wireless receiver. Last but not least, the CoPilot has a built-in IR autofocus assist for fast focus in low light.

    CoPilot Wireless TTL Flash Controller for Nikon is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It This is great! I use both pocket wizards for my Einstein's and this for my portable Q flashes they are amazing 150ws on a Speedlight. Easy power control. I have two my only grip is the screw that holds the antenna is plastic I replaced it with a mettle one also you can upgrade you antenna with a lager one aftermarket if you need more distance although it is unnecessary. I kind of like re-engineering my stuff to improve output and potential. in addition got caught in a downpour with this in the middle of a shoot and it held out. Dried it off with a rag and kept going under shelter. very well build except the plastic screw.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DOESN'T WORK OUT OF THE BOX In most of the cases this product WONT WORK OUT OF THE BOX. You will need to send your Qflashes for firmware update back to QUANTUM! In some cases you will have to pay for it...! By the other hand you must update your Copilot firmware online. PLEASE CHECK QUANTUM WEBSITE FOR MORE INFO. If you live abroad the US don't even think taking the risk of buying it because you'll be probably asked to send your Qflashes for firmware update.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from HSS does not work Copilot's high sync speed does NOT work properly with Nikon D700 or D800 and my Trio. There's is significant banding above 1/400. I understand how Quantum's HSS works because I own the Pilot and everything works fine. I posted about Copilot's HSS not working on Quantum forum and received no solution from Quantum. I own over $3000 in Quantum products and this Copilot will be my last purchase! :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT OUT OF BOX - GREAT PRODUCT It works perfectly fine for me. Its a great product, I had to update my trio firmware since the trio I have is almost two years old but it was no big deal, it took me probably 2 minutes at my house to update the firmware, quantum guy's are great if you need help with these firmware updates. You don't have to send trio or T-5DR to quantum for updates. Works awesome. I am a wedding photographer, I set up my two trio on each corner of the venue, use my OM3 ring light along with CO-Pilot and it gives me amazing result in the dark venue in and the night weddings. Very happy with this product and works flawlessly with Trio and T-5DR. Not to mention have pretty much complete control of TRIO's & T5DR wirelessly. I am getting the second one so I can control this from my second camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm HSS works, but in my case, only till 1/400 and from 1/4000. Everything in between is many stops overexposed. Tried it with the Nikon 800E.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Little Device It's a great device that has now replaced my 30' TTL cable which I always worried that someone would either trip over or step on. The CoPilot saves me setup time and it makes it very easy to adjust the brightness or power of my Quantum flash. Buy a backup battery since the no-name battery they included may not last very long.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Device!! Turn the trio into a stand alone flash!!; with the co-pilot I can use the X5dR as the main - and the Trio off to the side (off the camera) as the fill. Really turns the Trio into a much more useful tool. The Trio now can go on a stand, or in someone's hand. Possibilities are endless. Great price also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is cool! Great bit of gear! Easy to adjust while looking thru the viewfinder, no need to take your eye off the action. I've had less than 1 in 1000 non fires. B&H shipped very quickly to New Zealand.
