First test flights revealed construction weaknesses of early four-intake engines. During Orbit Drop trials were discovered several engine failures which lead to crash of vehicle. The main reasons to failure were high drag force of the block shape, low power in generator unit to sustain stable anti-gravity field plus weak structure of the engine block. On the later stage of development the problematic engines were replaced with two fused double engines with classic round form which drastically improved safety and performance of the vehicle.
