K5IIs - which budget flash?

Need a flash on a bit of a budget as just splashd the majority of my funds on the camera and lenses!

Whats avaliable at a low cost which has a tilt head and works well on the K5IIs.

Thank you,

Yongnuo. $70-90 on the eBay. Manual, but lots of power, tilt-swivel head and easy to use. Inside, go with 1/8th power bounced off the ceiling with the lens at f5.6, chimp your shot and adjust from there.

Promaster has a couple which are PTTL for Pentax. I can't speak to them, but I have a Promaster TTL which has given good service on my LX and 645n, and parts are still available! Mirabile dictu!
