Tim,

Mine are also 2.4 Ghz. I have heard that some people have alot of trouble
with these, but haven't really experienced it myself. The only thing that
happens for me, is that sometimes when I do rotational things like the
lunar phases demo, or coreolis, the picture will briefly roll on every
rotation if you don't play with the antenna orientation.

Later,
Dale
