Wing loading might be fairly high, considering that all the components needed to make it fly have a certain weight that doesn't get any lighter regardless of the airframe size.

Yes - search pizza box flyer and e square. There are lots of pictures and a video of the builder flying them. One is very small and uses actuators! I made the 18x18 model and it was a blast.
