Yongnuo, Godox, Help!

I'm sure this is something someone must have experience with and could help. My current lighting setup:

Yongnuo YN600EX-RT (on/off switch not working, hopefully warranty repairable)

Yongnuo YN600-RTii (already had to have replaced after a month)

Yongnuo YN-E3-RT

Mettle AD300 with battery pack


Obviously, I'm already invested in Yongnuo BUT what's that worth if stuff will easily breakdown or stop working?

Things I like: the convenience of off camera ETTL; the ability to adjust ratios, flash power, etc, from the transmitter; the price.

Things I don't: Two flashes broken in less than a year. Studio flash is not powerful enough to justify it's size.


1 Cheap option- Get the flash fixed if warranty works. One more flash of the same as a third light on the go/backup for the next inevitable issue

2 Moderate- Get an AD200 plus transmitters/receivers to have ETTL with the one or hopefully two Yongnuo flashes. Can a x1 receiver attached provide ettl to a yongnuo flash???

3- A little more $- AD200 plus a Godox flash and necessary triggers?

4 Any other options? Trying to stay under $600 tops. Prefer to stay as cheap as possible AND reliable. Is that even possible???
