Since this post began I have asked quite a number of people (not all modellers of any kind) what they perceive "wireless" & "infra red" control to be - 100% said ;

Wireless = radio as in "model aircraft & suchlike".
Infra red = cordless as in "TV & other remote controls".

IMHO "wireless" is, strictly speaking correct for infra red but not really what people may interpret - marketing forces at work ?

"Infra Red Remote" would have been more accurate with no chance of misleading anyone.
