    It will provide me a more powerful option when normal strobes with not suffice.

    I am very happy.
    The Godox X1T controller and R1 triggers did not pan out for me for several reasons. Shortly after I tried those, however, I had an opportunity to assist on a shoot with someone using an XPro Controller paired with an AD200 and some other Godox gear.

I sold off my Yongnuo flashes and triggers, as well as some other small kit, and ordered the same Godox AD200/XPro kit you did with the grids and barn door etc. Adding a V860 II rounds out my basic, two-light setup. The Yongnuo setup was good, but I'm loving my Godox gear so much more.

    Nice one Paul, it is a superb kit and I am also thinking about another Godox (not AD200) to add to the kit as a fill light.

    The AD200 is what finally brought me over to the Godox system... That thing is awesome!!

    Another really big selling point for me are the lithium battery powered flashes Godox offers. With my Yongnuo two-flash setup I needed 14 AA batteries... FOURTEEN!! That's eight for the two flashes, four more for the two triggers and another two in the TX controller. Packing a set of spares brought that total to (a ridiculous) 28 batteries. The Godox lithium batteries charge surprisingly fast, even the huge one for the AD200, and they seem to last forever.

    Also, if you haven't seen the Godox S Bracket let me tell you... It's a must have in my opinion. Superior in *every* way, in my opinion, to the typical umbrella bracket/cold shoe.

    I agree Paul, the Godox "S" bracket is a must for use with the AD200 especially when using on a lighting stand, it has the facility to take an umbrella as well and offers a secure and stable fixing for the flash.

    Coincidentally that's the one I have although I haven't yet photographed anything to use it. It came highly recommended for my Nikon flash.

I'm actually finding the Yongnuo's easier to work with, generally speaking, than I am the SB-700 but it could be that I'm just rusty with the Nikon.

    There's a mild learning curve to getting multiple flashes set up and adjusted "just so" using the X1R, but I expected that. And while I never thought I'd care about having a pass-through on the Controller now I'm starting to think it's a nice thing to have and see where I might use it from time to tome.

    So there you go: the Godox X1R is working like a champ with my Yongnuo flashes.
    Paul,
    What am I missing? I just got the Flashpoint Pro AD200 kit, dual head. I tried to fire my YN-568 using the pro trigger wirelessly. No go. Maybe I have a setting wrong. I only plan on using the Yongnu flahes for a little bit longer, but would like to pair them with the Godox/Flashpoint.

    Thanks

    I'm not Paul and don't have a definitive answer for you, but I've heard of stacking triggers. This article includes a pic showing triggers stacked on the hot shoe. Not sure if this is the only option though. Image from article is linked below.

    Re: Godox AD200

    Thanks @hark. I had thought of stacking triggers as a possibility but have not had time to try it and another option of using optical trigger ( light from one flash triggering the other) but that is line of sight.
