Bescor has a remote head-runs off one of their batterys - can carry 6 pounds (IIRC) they have 50 foot extension cables available and is only $130.00 or there abouts.
For a small lightweight camera that you need to control but can't put your hands on this seems like a viable solution (along with a decent monitor to be able to see with of course)

That looks very much like the same article.

I should have mentioned before that the need for radio control stems from a) the distances involved in some of our UK churches and b) the concern public places have for our Draconian "'elf 'n safety laws" c) to a lesser extent the time taken to gather up long extensions. If you're bothered by none of these the controls could be much simpler and less expensive.

yeah sometime ago I seem to recall a wireless remote head with a monitor. IIRC the monitor and control for the head seemed to resemble a laptop. Maybe it was but I also recall it was pretty costly but it really seemed to work.
Again this was sometime ago and I don't remember the name but it was built in the US and I think it was in the southeast states (North or South Carolina maybe) by a very small company-and people swore by the thing. I should have gotten one back then. :-(
