Yes I read, and best options from portkeys for wireless control are this models:
BM5WR
LH5P
BM5 III
BM5 II
BM5

But my budget is max 400$ and of course I can buy used on ebay as well.
Before this post I was thinking that shinobi has wireless control that's why included it, but I couldn't find on official page today any mentions about it, so it not interesting me anymore.
