Quick Question for Owners of Cactus V6 and V6 ii - Can They Trigger Each Other?

So I already own 2 V6 triggers and looking into getting a V6 ii (or 2). For those that have both, can they trigger each other? For example, could the V6 ii in TX mode trigger a flash (non-HSS) to a V6 in RX mode and vice versa? Sorry if this has been answered as I couldn't find it in search nor a definitive answer on some reviews.

Thanks!

Yes, as long as you are not using HSS (or PowerSync) then the V6II can trigger V6 receivers.

Cactus said they will release a firmware update around October that will enable PowerSync for the V6. A V6 will never be able to support HSS, though.

Well, if it won't support High Definition Sync, that is a deal breaker for me
