I dunno, the transformations would need to be fast for
any combat machine, or else the machine would have
a vulnerable time while it was transforming. Joints would
be reinforced to deal with "that" stress. What I never
could see was them transforming at high airspeeds.

As in I'm flying along as fast as I can go, and flip the
switch look I'm a battroid, no breaking speed, slow
down even, nope just high speed guiltless animation.
