Does it have 'regenerative braking'?

You beat me to it, have a pint on me.

Maybe they need to add something to convert the flow of air over the wings / body back into electrical energy...hang on, how about another propeller that's not powered but instead spins in the airflow and is attached to a generator...looks like I've invented perpetual motion, first & second law of thermodynamics pah.
