Home - yeair!
Uses 4 two stroke engines for endurance, with electric assist motors on the shafts for boost/fine control for navigation. Not quite a series hybrid, and kinda big.

Filld – On-Demand Fuel Delivery
Er, is this whole cutting out the middle man silicon valley disruption streak starting to feel like it's jumping the shark a little? Plus the whole fixed location and unlocked gas cap issue is obnoxious for some. But, get Elon Musk's robotic snake arm recharger on a truck to "refuel" EV/PHEV's (with some API that allows you to one time authorize popping open the recharge port), and you might have something. A SuperCharger truck/AAA road rescue truck setup, though would you use a battery bank, a genset, or supercap bank, or flywheels?

Hybrid Quadrotor
Interesting hybrid mixed propulsion VTOL quadcopter drone. Essentially a conventional flying drone with separate secondary lift engines, but while forward flight is done with a gasoline powered primary engine with high endurance, the secondary lift engines are effectively a stop rotor electric quadcopter which needs a short but very high power burst for vertical ops. So this basically adapts the different powerplants to match their advantages.
