We did this with fuel planes back in the 80's I think. It was fun but messy and got too much air in the fuel.

The electric idea is interesting but the only way I see it working would be to have capacitor powered planes with separate radio gear battery that isn't charged in the sky.

A wireless charge system like mobile phones use might work but I think they are only low power.

A squad of mini capacitor planes that have to refuel every 60 seconds would be a great competition to see who can stay in the air longest.
