Question Electrify Paper/Card Models?

Hello guys new to the site, but have been an electric flyer for a little while now. Been flying R/C on and off for about 20 years.

Question, anyone thought about taking a Paper/Card Model, the ones that can be printed on card stock on your printer. Making it and putting a motor on it? Of course the model needs to be flyable in the first place. But I'm curious if there is anyone that's done it or has been successful and is doing it. The electronics are getting better everyday, and lighter. Since it's a paper model it's also easy to scale up or down. It's cheap materials, and you don't have to paint it. Of course you'll need to reinforce certian points, with balsa, or carbon. Any downsides? Any examples? Any Links?
