Whenever I see one of Rand's posts, this image ALWAYS pops into my head:

In my younger days there were a few accusations by the locals along these lines but I plead the 5th. I am older and wiser now or at least I hope I am wiser.

QUOTED IMAGE

I presume you think of him as being in the cockpit. :-)

I also, noticed in the avitar and one of the "model"pix, that the aggi has a PT-6.

I still chuckle when I think about what the PW tech rep told me about how to warm up the prop shaft collar if it was cold and the prop would not free wheel. " hold one of the blades at the end, have the other pilot start the engine and let the oil temp come up a bit. Then let go ov the blade and step back quickly. (EMPHASIS on quickly.)

My wife bought this book at a yard sale, it's the fascinating story of two teenage brothers that flew a Piper Cub coast to coast in the 1960's. One night they flew into a rural landing field in the Midwest that was used by a bunch of rough and tumble crop dusters. Anyway, a book well worth reading.

Sorry David but no PT-6's here at least not in any of my photos but we do have one in our fleet at another location. The one in the Avitar is a TPE331-10 on an Ayres 510 Thrush ( https://photography-on-the.net …?p=13039131&pos​tcount=177 ) and the one in the background, of the picture with my lovely model Miss Kitty, is a Walter M601 E-11S on an Air Tractor 401W. In your defense though the Walter is a Czech made engine which closely resembles a PT-6.

Guys Edward is getting enquires now regarding which radio triggers will work with Nikon and the 5DIII etc in HSS (H-mode) ...

If anyone has any of these pre-sync / Hypersync / HSS enabled triggers listed though, or any others to try in H-mode, could you please let us know how they go so that we can try and compilate a list of which triggers are working reasonably well.

NIKON -

So far the Pixel Kings for Nikon are confirmed working

Other triggers that are highly likely compatible, but are yet to be confirmed -
- Phottix Odin (new firmware due soon should make these ideal)
- YN-622N for Nikon - Coming soon - (but worth waiting for if you're after a good inexpensive option)

Quite Possible - but also need to be confirmed
- PocketWizard TT1 or TT5 with any PocketWizard receiver

I have both PocketWizards and Nikon D700 to try with. If I can be given exact testing procedure (I vaguely recollect this might have been discussed before but I would have to go back to find exact posts) I will test.

I've been away from aviation for more than 30 years so my observation skills have fogged.

It I remember correctly the 331 is a variant of the engine we had in our Bell 206s. We used those for spraying. Along with some 47s. I have the honor of flying backwards in a 47 while the pilot was testing the flight controls after we did some repairs while he was on a spraying job. Company policy was that the lead mechanic doing work on flight controls would accept an offer from the acceptance test pilot to accompany him on the check ride.

It did help us pay attention. :-) And I got to go along on some exciting rides. :-)

Grerat thanks Zoran. I've messaged Chris Valites from PW to see if we can get a step by step run down.

So I finally have the funds to purchase the CL-180 but have a few questions.. Has it been confirmed that the CellsII CheetahSync will work with the 6D? I thinking about purchasing the 19in softbox with grid but was wondering if i would need something bigger to grid my wedding couple? If so, any suggestions as to what would work? Do you also think the 180 would be enough power to light a couple using hss at 8000?

Gridded 19" modifier for a couple? How much coverage are you expecting?

If you want soft light, you're going to need a bigger modifier. I like the 43" umbrella style soft box for ease of use. For bridal portraits I use the 50" square softbox. However a 30" umbrella will probably do the trick. If you don't care about softness in your lights, the bare reflector will work fine. Just move the light farther away.

it would have to be pretty far away (think across a big room), and because of the grid even this might not do it.
