Looking at SIG's website, I don't see a plane called a "rc sig kadet 51". They have several trainers however:

Kadet Senior (big plane, 78" wingspan)
Kadet Seniorita (63" wingspan)
Kadet LT-40 (70" wingspan - SIG calls this the "R/C trainer of choice at many club airfields. Kit or ARF)
Kadet LT-25 (63" wingspan ... smaller version of LT-40)
Kadet Mark II (57.25" wingspan)

If you're just learning to fly the LT-40 gets my vote. I just built the ARF version and test flew it a couple weeks ago. I will put floats on it soon.
