Hi Sanj.
Sorry, I only found there was any issue after you said you had bought one, I was mooching around eBay and saw mkii versions and then I stumbled upon the site PJ linked.
Fortunately you have the mkii version so all should be good.
Contrary to PBD’s experience my YN-E3-RT has been faultless, plus I think it maintains the ability to fire the pre ‘16 cameras with the flashes and the YN-E3-RX definitely works, though I think they may have been discontinued so if you want one of the RX it will be eBay!

Cheers, Graham.
Thanks Graham

I've had good luck with the Godox/Flashpoint Xpro-C wireless trigger at about $70.

I started with the Yongnuo flashes but found that they overheat after about 18-20 flashes (it's in the manual) and you have to wait for them to cool down. I switched to Godox which will allow about 80 full power flashes which have never been a problem. I use the PB960 power pack to get almost instantaneous recharge and found I could easily overheat the Yongnuo flash during running and gunning photography.
