Okay... So i have finally got the 2 flashes figured out with my D70. I practice practice practice, in my house for 3 days... Today I go out gonna be all cocky and everything, Put the Sb800 thats mounted on my D70 in MASTER MODE Channel 3 A, The other on a stand 5 feet away in REMOTE mode, Channel 3 A and what happens... NOTHING?? I get one or two flashes, but thats it.. Batteries are new in both flashes...

Do I have to have sensors faciing a certain way or something?? What is the range I can expect from this should it be working???
