So, as we progress into larger and larger motors and rockets, we all like different things......but FIRE and THUNDER always seem to be pleasing on such a visceral level.

What's YOUR favorite motor for producing a crazy flame:rocket ratio, or for a thunderous roar?
Dark Matter motors. Even the little G72DM Puts on a great show very noisy with lots of sparks fire and smoke.

AMW M2200 Skidmark!
Anyone still have any to fly?

I miss AMW. That one and the M2500GG were just the coolest. Sadly I never got to fly an AMW motor myself.

For favorite motors, right now probably Aerotech Metalstorm propellant. The G75M, H170M, and K540M are the standouts in my mind. I really like the look and sound and sparkiness without sacrificing much performance.

Edit: Corrected K550M to K540M.

I recall seeing the Kosdon L1860 way back when... Wish I could get my hands on one of those now.
