Greetings,

As I start looking at possibly buying a used Vortex, I've seen references to different revisions. Naturally things would change along the way, but where there actual Rev 1, 2, 3 etc versions? Using the wayback machine, I see that the kit price (minus engine and options) were $22,800 in 2009-2012, $26995 in 2013-2016, then $36995 from 2017-2021. Did these large price increases indicate different versions of the Vortex? If so, are there versions to avoid?

Thanks,
Rusty
