I have been told that I can control my Canon 600EX-RT (as well as Canon non-RT hotshoe flashes) as a slave with a Godox (Flashpoint) R2 X1 transmitter/receiver if I have the 600EX-RT attached to a Godox (Flashpoint) R2 Receiver.

I have been seriously considering replacing my Godox (Flashpoint) X-1 Transmitter/receiver with the Godox (Flashpoint) R2 Pro Transmitter because the display on the Pro unit is easier for my old eyes to see than the display on the X-1.

The Godox (Flashpoint) R2 Receiver costs $40 at Adorama while the R2 Pro Transmitter costs $69.

Could I slave the Canon 600EX-RT flash with the R2 Pro Transmitter if the 600EX-RT was mounted on the R2 X1. That way, I could have both the advantages of using my 600EX-RT as a slave and have the newer R2 Pro Transmitter at only a $29 increase in cost over purchasing the R2 Receiver....

I think I understand your question. I also have most of the gear that you have but in the Flashpoint branding.

Picture 1 below is transmitter only. It will not accomplish what you are trying to do.

Picture 2 is receiver. If you have this, I do not see why it would not work as described with the R2 Pro.

I do not have the receiver so I can not test this for you. After trying to get the Canon and Flashpoint stuff to work together I gave up. I bought three of the Li-on R2 Speedlights and only use the Canon 600 if it is on camera only.

I'm still unclear on what the question is,.

I can tell you that the r2 receiver being triggered by any of the R2 transmitters has worked perfectly for me with Canon 580EXII. I don't have a 600 to try, but it should behave the same.

Are you asking of you can re-use your X1-t as the receiver instead of getting the R2 receiver?

I'm not positive, but i don't think so. The Godox 2.4GHz system are not made as "transceivers" they are transmitters and receivers that are purpose built.
