XcSource radio flash triggers with Yongnuo 560II

Hello. I thought maybe someone would be interested in this.
Some time ago i bought these triggers http:// from amazon uk. After receiving, i only tested them indoors in my small room, just to see if they work. But yesterday i took a thorough test outdoors. I did use my Yongnuo as a fill flash off camera, so while my K5 was next to flash it fired 100% out of 96 frames (i was making a timelapse). Then i just started to test the distance of these triggers. And so - outdoors, with some used but not too much batteries, it fires the flash 10/10 up to 8 metres, after 10 metre line it is very inconsistent to say at least. Actually it fired 2/30 at 11 metres with direct sight of trigger and transmitter.
So now i need to test it at darkness with obstacles between transmitter and receiver.
Hope someone got anything interesting out of this thread and maybe i will post my further test later.
