Default Mystery Wings...

Hi,

Friend of mine gave me these wings. He found them in the house he bought.
Previous owner passed away and used to fly RC. They seemed like they
were laying around for a while.

Wings are 36" on length each, foam core. Stickers that look orange are red.
Black supports are metal.

Anyone have any clue what these could be from?

Thanks

It's a Byron's original. The aileron linkage is a dead give away. It looks a lot like the Byron's CAP 21 I have. Give us some wing half measurements and chord measurements.

some more data:

Root: Chord = 13 1/4 " Max thickness = 1 7/8
Tip: Chord = 8 3/8 " Max thickness = 1 5/16

Not sure what you mean by half wing measurment?

Dimesions could be a little off, lots of repairs to the wings.

Thanks for the help so far.

Iron Bay took over the Byron line. Some of the stuff is being made again, but not alot. Place a want ad in the Marketplace, or you might get lucky on Ebay someday.
