Sound Card

When we were kids, we'd put playing cards in our bike spokes to simulate the sound of a motorcycle as we pedaled down the street.

Now that i'm into these ww2 electric airplanes, i'd like to do something similar to get a bit more bark out of my wildcat during flybys.

I see that you can get computerized sound modules and all kinds of similar trinkets, but i'm wondering if anyone's ever simply taken a strip of medium-weight paper and installed it so that the prop flicks it as it turns?

It's a pretty silly thought and i havent experimented with it yet, just wondering if anyone else has?
