That is totally up to the non-Canon flash. If it is 100% compatible with Canon optical or radio flash, it will work.

(BTW, your question is confusing. Do you want X-Sync or wireless?)

Sorry my ignorance, I understood the 2.4G follow the X-Sync protocol.
I bougth a new R10 to use with old FD lens and need a off camera flash, I am try with bats photos, and do not like a slave flash triggered by the light of the camera flash, I am planing to buy a new flash, but budget is not enogh for Canon Flash, I need a manual flash triggered wireless by R10

I do not own the R10 but I don't think it will trigger an off camera RF (radio) flash on its own. You will need a trigger that fits in the hot shoe and a flash that is compatible with that trigger. These are usually radio and sold as a set. I think you are confusing the 2.4ghz WiFi in the R10 with the flash sync protocol used to sync the shutter and flash duration.

As for getting a non Canon brand, like  Godox and others, the R10 has a "Multi-function shoe?" which may not be compatible yet, so be cautious 🙂
