In this video I explain how to use the RCDavis SMT Slave Controller to operate a Wireless Remote Slave Flash unit, meaning that you don't need the traditional pigtail for the PT sensor to detect the flash from your camera . One thing that I didn't mention in the video is that you can place the PT (phototransistor) in front of your remote slave flash if you feel more confident in doing that. If you use the PT you will need to set Dip switch #1 to the ON position and leave Dip switch #2 in the OFF position, that will select 1 Flash Programming and will ensure that the RCDavis SMT Slave Controller will detect the slave flash when it fires and start recharging the capacitor for the next shot. Although using the PT is not required, it certainly will not hurt to do so and it could add an extra measure of certainty that the wireless slave will fire when needed.

There seems to have been some confusion and is my fault for not clarifying it but for anyone wanting to use the Safari Camera Controller with the wireless remote slave flash, the Safari board must be coded with the Flash Program in order for it to work with the Flash Backpacker and the wireless transmitter to operate the wireless remote slave flash.
