I am not a pro - the direct opposite :), but from my limited experience you need to get ISO up. With K-5 i raised it to 6400 while using on-board flash. It was enough to get da 40mm to f7 on scarcely illuminated city street.

With external flash it should be even better. Bats tend to fly in same path a few times so try to see where it circles and predict it for correct focus and frame. It will take descent number of shots to get it right.

My bat shot (after developing in ACDsee):
