There's no "go-round" in a glider.

Does this mean the future for prop engined aircraft is drag free solar panel and little windmills on the wings.

…or, do they fit a larger diameter prop and park it facing the wind until the battery is fully charged?

Out of curiosity I checked the battery weight of electric cars.

According to Google
Tesla S has a battery weighing 1,200 lbs (544 kgs). The model also comes with two different battery pack configurations which brings a weight difference of 4,647-4,940 lbs (2,108-2,241 kgs)
