Thought you might be interested in this link I ran across on an RC site. R/C Aerial Photography & Accessories

They have an IR trigger that you can plug into an RC receiver, so it would work with the K-x since it doesn't have a wired shutter release option.

I am using a Hahnel wireless camera trigger. It can also be used for a wireless flash trigger. The claimed range is 100 meters. I haven't tested the range but it does seem to work really well for both a camera trigger and a flash trigger. The Canon version can be used on Pentax cameras.
