This Wing Belongs to WHAT?...
 
1 Attachment(s)
I recently was given this wing from a fellow club member, however, he didn't know what it went to and neither did I. I was just wondering if any of you would know... you may be able to tell there is some slight dihedral in the wings which makes me think it may be the wing of a Kadet from SIG, which one I do not know if it is one... I'll put some specs up tomorrow but right now here are some pictures.

If it is 57.25" ws and 11" chord, it could be from a Kadet MKII. It seems to built with less dihedral than spec. The other Kadets did not have ailerons; but of course many people added them. The Kadet MKII ailerons extended to the wing tips however. The wing tips look like a Kadet.

Looks like it may be from a Goldberg Eagle. It would be about a 63in span. Are the wing tips thin abs plastic caps?

Hey guys, thanks for trying to help figure out my mystery wing so to speak... sorry I didn't post the dimensions yesterday, I have been swamped with work. Here are the measurements that I took..

Wingspan: approximately 59 inches
Chord Length (from LE to TE): approximately 11 inches.

Huck, you may very well be correct, I thought from the beginning it belongs to a Sig Kadet of some kind, the dimensions are very close indeed and the profile, such as the wing tips, are similar to the kadets as well..
