Have pulled the trigger on the Xpro transmitter and 3 Li-on r2 zoom flashes (one ttl, two manual).
Are there any pitfalls I need to worry about? I'd like to add at least one more powerful flash, I'm thinking about selling a couple of white lightnings 1600 to finance a strobe or ad200.. thoughts? I do both studio, and outside/run and gun stuff.

Nothing to worry about. The beauty of the R2 system is that it all talks, so you don't have to worry about mixing manual, ETTL, etc, all on the same system.

If you're wanting more power, the AD200 will do it for a costly amount but remain super portable and versatile, while the 360 does more power for cheaper, but at the expense of bulk and extra cables and stuff. Personally I'd get the AD200 as it's already more powerful than a few speedlites on its own which does the job and can perform fill in full sun as it is, so it's plenty powerful to me for it's flexbility and size. I think the 360's are just too big, cumbersome, cables, powerpacks, etc, compared to the AD200 which is basically a strobe that is about the size of a speedlite, it's truly wonderful. If you need sun stopping power though, the AD600 is the way to go unless you want to fiddle with lots of smaller lights and combine them to make something around that powerful. I use a 600Ws all the time outside, and I think I'd probably be fine with just the AD200 frankly.

So my vote: AD200

You're good to go. The R2 system is really great and inexpensive for what it is.

Very best,

Thanks, those were the same things I was debating about, portability vs power. I shall look closer at the AD600. I was really surprised at the standard strobe in 300W and 400W being available so cheap!

Black Fridays - Cyber mondays, they all conspired to lighten my wallet. After purchasing one ttl flash, and two manual, Li-on types, and playing with them, I've pulled the trigger for 2 more, plus two strobes.. these are the bomb, so glad Godox decided to make life easier.
