At least when you finish laughing I won't have to waste much time arguing feasibility. The technology is already here. Aside from the presents of robotics in manufacturing or private research, I've personally seen two examples of this science used for fun stuff. One is robotic Sumo Wrestling. Two or more machines are pitted to see which one can remove the other from a 3 foot circle. Robot Sumo attracts competitors/experimenters from both the amateur and university level. Another really neat robot is the Snooker playing machine. I think it was developed at Cambridge University . If it would have been built at Georgia Tech. they would have programmed it to play Nine Ball. Anyway, the machine consists of an armature with a box containing a brain, gizmos, sensors and a short little cue stick. The multi-jointed crane and box navigates its way around on a track attached to the rail of the table. It does miss once in a while, but the student researchers said it once stacked 27 racks in succession. "At's a' blooody stroong gaime' a' Snoooker, maigh'!" So, the only thing I see standing in the way of a robotic fighter kiter' is the desire to build one. Maybe call it the "fat kid Mark-1" or something.
It d' be pretty cool though. The machine I visualize probably looks much different than the eventual/theoretical first working model . I'm sure it could be built no larger in size than a garbage can or an old R-2 unit. Fully automated, pre-programmable to task or skill level, - hell, the thing could even fly compet- itively . If yer' still laughin', think about this. According to the N.F.K.A. rules, competing with a fighter kite flying machine is totally legal.
