I was designing a hovercraft charger when I noticed that the dynamo generator wasn't generating power. I also noticed this when I was building a plane that used fans. Now, it makes sense for hovercraft, though it doesn't make sense for aircraft that use fans or rotors. From my understanding, a dynamo generator takes some of that mechanical energy from say a turbine spinning or a wheel turning and converts it into electricity. Obviously, this can't be done for aircraft that use ion drives or jets, but it'd make sense for something that uses mechanical energy for movement. I can't tell if this is a bug or a design choice.

Dynamo generator works with the wheels as far as the lore goes. It won't work with any flying techs unless hoverbugged IIRC.
