Tilta 2-axis wireless lens control system for PL/EF lenses operating focus and iris wirelessly up to 1.5 miles apparently, making it ideal for long distance drone work. What is unusual about the Tilta system is that each servo unit contains its own rechargable battery and is its own receiver, so there are no additional cabling requirements for the servos and the control  is either by hand unit or separate thumbwheel controllers (supplied).

This system is compatible with DSLR and cinema cameras and has full control of focus and iris for cinema lenses.
Each motor has a wireless module to receive signal without the MDR, which will help save space and set-up time
