The problem is the sync voltage of the Metz, which will fry the 5D electronics. At any rate, now have a PC Buff white light 1600 so can radio control that.So you are using a $1,000 flash as an optical triggering device to trigger an underpowered $20 flash? I don't see that as making any sense, why not just plug the Metz into the PC port on the camera?
But a simple 'studio' light is going to give you way more bang for the buck anyway and get you to the power output you need rather than mess around with AA batteries.
