Markerlight drone difference?

I'm getting into the Tau and noticed there is a difference in basically every bit of these two markerlight drones. The top drone being from the stealth team and bottom being from my pathfinders.
Is there any special rules or accepted practice? Is it just a flavored model with the stealth team? An older model that comes with one of the two?
The stealth suit box is an older kit that was released about 15 years ago and they haven’t received an update (they honestly don’t need it). The marker drone is just for flavor if you like it. I personally don’t like how the pieces of the drone fit together, so I just took the disc from the stealth box and put it on extra marker drone bits I had from my pathfinders.
That makes sense. It looks like it's pointing a baby antenna at the enemy. The pathfinder version looks like a double sized version of the carbine mounted markers.
Noticed the same thing. I'm not certain, but I think the pathfinders are newer. I can't help but think the one set of legs on the stealth suits with a big chunk of amorphous plastic in the crotch is a sign of age for either the mold or the modeling techniques. Just a hunch.
Painting my suites today. Holy hell these guys got some globby plastic legs. I only got them because they looked fun to paint...
