Whilst backpacking in the Sierra Nevada mountains, a friend of mine came across what appeared to be the detritus of an aircraft crash.

He found a propeller and some aluminum skin and plastic (photos of the prop: here
). The only other bit of information they could glean was the prop had "NOT FAA APPROVED" stamped on it.
Based on this (extremely limited) information, are there any reasonable assumptions as to the size of the aircraft and its purpose?
