question about remote control for thruster

I'm having a Side-Power bow thruster installed in the interest of marital bliss, amongst other things. The owner of the yard that is doing the work says that having just a wireless remote would be the least expensive control option. I'm leery about having a thruster that is not wired into a controlling joystick or touch pad. (Visions of the boat spinning off on its own when a stray radio signal come in...) I'd be interested to receive guidance from others who have experience with thruster remotes.

Re: question about remote control for thruster

No need for replies now. I found out from Imtra that they do not recommend going with just wireless control as the boatyard suggested. I'll have a wired control and add the remote after checkbook recovers. -JTC
