Is it possible?

After learning on my own and beating my Tiger Trainers nose gear and firewall to a pulp, it has come time to retire the old fuse.
The wing, albeit in need of some covering repairs, is in good condition. And since I've been out of the hobby for the past 8 years or so, I figure using my dura-stik to reaquaint myself with powered flight is probably not the wisest idea.
My question is, do you think it is possible to mount the Tiger Trainer wing on the dura-stik's fuse? I know I'll probably have to make a saddle or something as the aileron servo is on the bottom of the wing compared to on top for the stick, so I'll probably need some clearance.
And I know I might need to adjust the angle of incidence - but to what degree? I figure maybe +1 or 2 degrees to start and go from there.
I figure the span and chord of both wings are almost identical although the stiks wing has no dihedral and is a symetrical airfoil, it oughta work out fine.
Anyone try retro fitting one wing to another model. Any pointers or advice would be appreciated. I'm basically trying to use this as my re-trainer.
I suppose my other alternative, short of replacing it with a new trainer, would be to see if the dura-plane trainer wing set is still available and use that.
