Q + wireless trigger?

Just tried the Aputure Trigmaster - got it to fire fine on my Kr, but the Q failed - any thoughts suggestions from those of more experience? I was hoping for some Flash lighting in some Macro work, initially went in for P-ttl cable for my 540 FGZ, but came away with the wireless trigger... I want to make sure I'm not missing anything before I take it back to the shop.

Thanks
M.

I know that at least you have to turn of the flash in the Q menu. Weird but true.

I have the camera set to "option 2: disable flash when retracted". I'm not sure if that is the setting you are speaking of.
