About six months after the release of the V 1 series hoverchairs, Hov-Co announces the V 2 series based off the very successful V 1.6.

In the center of the picture is the V 1 for comparison.
To the left of the image is the new V 2. This model is the planned replacement for the V 1 and for customers that want some "wiggle room" or "a hoverchair built for two". V 2.1 (top)and V 2.2 (bottom)come equipped with seat back for the safety conscious customer. V 2.2's seat is slightly more aerodynamic and rugged but offers no other significant benefit. The V 2 series has a 750 lb lifting limit at 150 mph. They can soar at a height of 100 feet with a 100 mile range with the 3 standard AG emitters.

Sorry this one took so long. I was sick and in the hospital.
Any set guesses yet? Here's another hint or two; look at the shape, some colors may have substitutions, but in general I stuck to the set parts.

Glad you're feeling a bit better!

I like these, more than the others. These have the feel of being small 'rigs'. Very Nice!

A year after the successful launch of the V 2, Hov-Co announces the V 3.
The V 3 is a departure from the V 2 in that it's design incorporates ports, hooks, and other mini attachment points for things such as IV's and medical monitoring equipment. The V 3's are the first models designed for long term use.

At the top of the picture we have the accidentally released "V 3". About 1000 of these units were sold to the public as "The new V 3". This was an error. They were supposed to be pre-production test models to be given to Hov-Co's public beta testers. This models only difference with the "V 3.1" is that it can only go as high as 150 feet. Off to the right is the V 3.1. This is the true V 3 model, but Hov-Co left it as V 3.1 to avoid confusion. This unit has a 300 ft clearance, with a 200 mph speed limit. It can go 150 miles between charges and hold up to 1000 lbs. Off to the left is model V 3.2. This model has a movable canopy put on it for streamlining and protection. This model was so successful that several dealers ran out of them and their associated free upgrades on the first day of it's release. This unit is able to hover at a speed of 225 mph with a 1250 lb limit. Otherwise it's identical to the others in the V 3 series.

Finally done. Bet the set is obvious now. Going to cut down on the amount of typing. My carpo-tunnel and arthritis is complaining about it. Hopefully I'll get V 4 up so I can show you the paper I'm working off of.

Those are cool! I like the front one the best.

Hope your carpo-tunnel eases up for you, no fun there.

Sadly, I still have no idea about the set, but I've really like seeing your ideas for the hovers.
Good stuff!!
