Hmmm... if you carefully read what has been written, than you will find that 
"for years" it was planned to use the 400N motor first and than the Arcjet 
when the S/C is 3-Axis stabilized. 

Only last year the strategy was changed to get the best performance out
of the propulsion system. But with the better orbit we've got, it was
decided to go back to the original plan..

All this was described in various articles in the AMSAT-NA journal and
other publications or papers by Viktor Kudielka OE1VKW.
