Default hybrid info?

Just wondering if anyone has experimented with the hybrid concept for rc use. Such as gas/ elec. drivetrain (like locomotives) seems there could be some high perf potential there.

Default RE: hybrid info?

Yes, I have a friend that runs a weed eater motor in his tug boat.
The motor drives an automotive generator that runs the electric motor.

It gives him an almost unlimted running time.
