Scored an AF160FC Ring Flash

I'm really happy this week. I found a used AF160FC on Amazon Japan. They wouldn't ship to Hong Kong (or anywhere outside of Japan, I think), but I found an enterprising outfit in Japan that purchases goods from Japanese e-tailers and ships them wherever you are (for a fee, of course). The flash arrived yesterday and it has all the parts, is in great condition and works perfectly. I've been using an AF080C for a number of years and have gotten some great photos with it. I typically set it for 1/4 power and manually set ISO, shutter and aperture. I got to where I could anticipate correct settings fairly quickly, but now I can choose an aperture and go. Also, the AF160FC has modeling lights, which makes it easy to focus on bugs in the dark (much easier than trying to hold a flashlight or twist the camera so your headlamp will illuminate whatever you're trying to focus on. Now I need to find something to take pictures of!

Can these two flashes be remotely controlled by other models or must they be wired to the camera all the time?

Sidenote: wow another Pentaxian from HK!
