It's been done several times, seems like a fun idea. Do a search, maybe in the electric area.

my friend and i made 2, 15 inch square, control surfaces were 1.5 inches if i remember right...anyway we used 3 6g servos, cheap escs, gws 350 motor d gearing and 12x6/11x4.7 props, 2 cell 1200/1500mah batteries

they flew.. the torque of the motor was insane if you tried to hover, it pretty much wasnt possible, althought a 3 cell/diff gearing/prop would help a lot im sure

we had fun with them, mainly cause we bashed the hell of the them, if you make one my only suggestion is to rig up a prop saver, they will break a lot (like 95% of the landings)

if your looking for something to throw together (you already have the motor, servos, etc.) and beat the **** out of then its worth it..but dont expect a great flying plane.

theyre quite fun with a few of them flying trying to combat, and they sure dont break too easy
