I did, unsupported covering on leading edge kept me from going past 140MPH and then covering compression would induce unstable wing warping control. beyond that it was fun to a point.
I would gear up for a battery weight of 400g-500g which will max you out to around 1000W-1500W setup, I geared up for 7" props to get enough pitch options as I went forward with development.

FWIW a box stock EXTREME FLIGHT OUTLAW, will get you 150MPH for a $500 investment as a benchmark, I fly a converetd EF nitro version to electric and in the 170MPH range at 2500W with a 700g battery.
