K3 and remote control that works with K5

thinking of upgrading to k3 from k5...I noticed in one of the ads that the FLU card is required to enable remote control and that the card is around $100.00. are they referring to a remote control that is different from the little $12 remote control lunit I have that works with my k5...I assume it is more related to control from phone etc, but my question is does the K3 still have the shutter setting allowing for use of the small remote device?

K-3 uses the same remote as other Pentax cameras both wired and infrared. FLUcard is something different.

Yeah, the IR and wired controls are exactly the same, the FLUcard on the other hand is to be coupled to a phone, computer or a pad.
