We tested over 17,000 motors to be sure we had a safe and reliable product that could be sold to the public.

On a good day, we could test about 1,000 motors. That's a lot of zinc flavored smoke to chew on, let me tell you.

We started with the "Dark Star" formulation for the motors. We had also planned a "Dragon Fire" propellant formulation, similar to Aerotech's current "White Lightning" propellant. The longer cases were needed for those motors, as the propellant was not as dense.
