    Love the detail and the step by step method of the progression of the course. I loved the one light set up at a time and that the whole course is real. Great stuff. Paddy the Irishman —- Yes, please post my feedback

    The courses are excelent and I couldn’t ask for much more. However, you talk of location using battery power and then using skyport or pocket wizard but nothing has been discussed on how to use or purchase these items. I’d love more insight on these topics.Perhaps you could do instructions on choosing equipment and how to use it. Otherwise, I really think everything is fantastic. Thank you. —- Yes, please post my feedback
