Permanently set a MFT lens to infinity?

Hello there! I searched the forum for an answer for this somewhat odd question, but could not find an answer.

I want to know if there is a way to permanently and reliably set a MFT lens to infinity. Maybe a piece of tape on the correct contact tab? I still need to be able to adjust aperture though.

The reason I am asking is that I shoot a lot from drones, and I want the lens set to infinity without risking me or the camera to throw the focus out of infinity in any way. For some reason the camera throws the infinity focus away after every restart, even if the lens ring is set to manual. Yeah, I could prefocus manually before every lift, but it is kinda messy to reach the camera once it is installed in the gimbal.

I mostly use the Zuiko 12mm on Black Magic Pocket Camera and Panasonic GH4.
