I am looking for some strobes and was wondering if this is a decent kit for the price? https://www.amazon.com ...smid=A2G050R0A48Q2U​&psc=1 (external link) and would I need this to make it totally wireless? https://www.amazon.com ...?smid=AMIHU7JS0U6DA​&psc=1 (external link)

Yes, that will work.

however, Godox has upgraded that system so the trigger is built into the 400w strobes, and it only takes one on camera trigger in the hot shoe to trigger the lights.

plus, the new system also matches up with other speedlights and strobes that have built in 2.4g triggers.

I've gone with the newer system, to have one main trigger to control both speedlights and triggers all together, or separately, as my lighting needs dictate.

here is a system overview

So this would be the newer version? https://www.amazon.com ...hy-Lighting/dp/B0775KZT7M (external link)

yes, I believe so. I went for the xpro1 master control trigger, all the controls are easier to get to on the camera that way, but there are many ways to skin this cat, and I'd go with the 2.4g triggers on the strobes at the very least.

Yes, but the Adorama Flashpoint R2 version (external link) would give you some actual customer support, should you need it. :)

Things to look out for: lowest power setting is 1/16 power, and the strobe does not have auto-dump. So, if you go from a higher power setting to a lower one, you have to hit the TEST button to dump power before taking a shot.
