The difference is 2,365 MHz, but that isn't what you're asking.
35MHz is low VHF (e.g. model aircraft)
2.4GHz is a deregulated WIFI band.
Simple signaling will work at 35MHz, but the 2.4GHz will allow high-speed mass data transfer, e.g. if you wanted to take a signal from a camera in the plane.

35 mhz operates on 35 mhz :P

2.4 ghz is widely used and will have interference,
35 mhz won't have as much.

The two receivers just operate on different frequencies.
