I would say no to a wireless remote, unless there was a way to disable it until you are ready to use it.

I have played with RC Trucks, airplanes and helicopters for over 20 year, and I'm not talking about the cheap Chinese crap you see at walmart. That said any RC device can receive RF interference. This interference could engage the winch to either spool in or out the line on it.

I looked in to the Warn one for my Warn Powerplant, but it had no way to control air compression part of the Powerplant so I passed on it.

We have used it to fully unwind my winch 120ft out and it worked great.
I have also used it upto 3 jeep lengths away when we were hiding behind one becouse my cable started to break in mid pull. Now i run a synthetic line.
