RoboRaptor has finished her first season. She has accompanied the Team to local Science Fairs, the VEX World Tournament, and the Kalamazoo Air Zoo.

A few mods have been necessary. The flame waveguide mounting was too weak, and now a bolt and nuts secure them through drilled holes inside the mouth. The wing spars have rotated 90 degrees, for better aerodynamics. The sawtooth wing motion was too rough, and eventually loosened several bolts, so parabolic motion has been programmed (see listing).

She is now ready for another year of service, as the Team enters their final season.
