    Hello, I just picked up an FL-300R for my EPL-1. A much better flash than the built in flash indeed; however, I am trying to figure this out, can I fire the FL-300 remotely without the built in flash firing? I have absolutely no use for the built in flash, I just want to fire the FL-300 remotely. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Yep, you can trigger it use RC control, same as big brother FL36R, 50R etc... radio triggered by rc control, without flashing internal flash

    Some clarification is needed here...in RC mode the internal flash still has to light up to send codes to the other flashes, but in te RC screen you can set it so the internal flash doesn't have any exposure influence on the image.
