This video is of an M-711 Slow Black Motor Being Tested.  Be sure to look at the flame to see the Mach Diamonds out the Nozzle.  Of all of the 75mm Motors, this is the longest burn.  The fuel shown in this video is the Black Smoke Fuel.  This motor can now be purchased and is ready for sale.  

TMT Testing Video 2:

This Video is of an M-2281 Fast Black Motor Being Tested.  This is one of 3 motors currently available in the Fast Combustion chamber using the 3200cc Nitrous Oxide Tank.  The Motor Starts almost instantly, and burns very quickly.  At the end of the burn you can very easily hear the sound of Nitrous Oxide Blowdown, (Gas Phase).  At Motor Burnout there is a slight "Pop" sound that the motor produces.  This is from the Cold Air from outside the motor being sucked back into the combustion chamber, and re-igniting the fuel for a split second.  This "Pop" should not be heard during motor flight.

This Video is of the L-1222 Medium Sparky.  This motor also fits with the 3200cc Nitrous Oxide Tank, and 11.875 Inch Combustion Chamber.  This is a Must See Video, as the Sparks Exiting the Blast Deflecting Tunnel are Amazing!  There is a Super Loud Buzz at the end of burn from Blowdown, and then a "Pop" from the Re-entering of Cold Air into the Combustion Chamber.  The Pop Will not be heard during flight.

This Is the Video Which Corresponds to Video 4, of the Sparky Motor.  This Video Also Shows the Huge Amounts of Sparks produced by these motors!  There is a double pop at the end of the motor.  Note that the sparky motors seem to have hot Titanium in the motors after burn for the Popping to occur.  This video is another Must See Video!
