I backed for a SuperEarlyBird with a Bowens-S-Mount and hope they will find enough backes.

I am using Cactus since they brought out the 1st V6 and meanwhile use V6II and RF60, It is a great system and the firmware support after purchasing was good so far - I realy can recommand to use that system.... and spend some bucks in the Kickstarter Campane.

I think it depends on which Godox models you look at.

The RQ250 will be better than the AD200, for instance, but should be very comparable to the AD400PRO and AD600PRO.

Its looking bad for the Kickstarter campaign, I'm still open for a group buy for those who missed out on the Super Early Bird Round.

I don't get that. Did something better get announced somewhere ...

Why back out if it seems to struggle the last mile. It's not like their money are going nowhere if the goal isn't reached.

The recent Godox "P-TTL / HSS" trigger announcement is the obvious negative influence here.

There is very limited interest around here for premium flash and strobes.... Have we heard of anyone using the Phottix or Cononark TTL options for Pentax?

The RQ250 remains a highly desirable option for Cactus V6II owners and those looking to invest in the system and the extras it provides over the new Godox competition, so we can only hope that Cactus succeed in getting it to market as soon as possible.

About 30 backers missing with two hours to go...

So sad!

The campaign and project is suspended. They did not have enough backers unfortunately.

In a Facebook post Cactus announced that due to the unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign the RQ250 will not be produced.

This is really sad news.

Itís unfortunate. I ended up pledging, but guess it ended in vain.
Wonder how much the Godox announcement effected this.

Never the less Iíll continue to use my V6/V6II and Rf60.
