Just today, one of the flyers in our club (MASA Minnesota) experienced the same thing. The G33 pellet popped, lifting the Estes Leviathan about 2 feet, but the motor didn't ignite. No damage to the case or rocket. He was able to successfully ignite the now pellet-less G33 with a pyrogen igniter (AT First Fire I believe).Burned some G33's today to verify any problems, 8 in total. Biggest thing I niticed with the first 5 motors was the loud pop from the pellet, seemingly pressurizing the motor far more than needed, then the drop in presure snuffing out the motor before it can light (similar to the VMax issue snuffing out the delay).
I have a video I can post if anyone is interseted.
