My RF-602s came in today so I ran a quick test with both of my Quantaray flashes @ 1/32 power. 300 flashes from close to 30 feet away and not a single misfire. Can confirm they work amazingly with this flash for anybody who is looking for wireless triggers.

Any reason to go with this flash vs. the Yongnuo's?

It was half the price, and shipped a lot quicker because it didn't come from China. Performance wise, I don't think they differ too much, but the Quantarays might be slightly more powerful.

I have both, the Quant is more powerful, ettl, cheaper and quicker shipping.
I bought the quant after I had already purchased the yongnuo's or I would not have bought them.

I'm not so sure they are worth that much.

Setting it to TTL mode and rather than aiming the flash directly at somebody, changing the angle of the flash so it bounces against a wall or ceiling. Mine doesn't work when I try to do this, it's always extremely underexposed. If you're using bounce, I suspect you need to use manual mode. (Despite the flash knowing, and displaying the orientation of the flash)

e: v Neither of mine correctly expose when bounced on camera.

There isn't an e-TTL flash "mode" but when it's on camera in e-TTL you can bounce the flash and it will give the correct exposure. So, yes, e-TTL bounce flash does work.
