Frank and Foil - Thank you guys for nice pics!

Here’s a 558 (actually 545) wing over 548, edge of matching shape (here trailing edge) aligned to demonstrate difference in wings area.

If anyone can take a similar pic of 548/550 over 590 that’d be cool.

Moses says width of 548 is 120mm as well as 558 while 548 is wider (132?). The 590 is said to be 132mm wide, so I can only guess if that’s the case.

I just measured chord lengths for you:

590: 132mm
548: 132mm
550: 132mm
558: 120mm

Cheers,
Frank

I wish someone could take a similar pic of 548/550 over 590 that’d be cool to be able to see wing area difference.

While I do not think this picture has much relevance due to perspective making it far from showing real life size difference, here you have it:

590under548.jpg

I think the pics I posted before say quite a bit more really.
But even those do not tell how they ride in comparison :)
Which I will be going to do NOW back to back.

Cheers,
Frank

Thank you Frank!
Can’t wait for feedback from your session.

I took your previous pics, applied my expertise from 2’nd grade in using scissors and came up with following comparison.
Nice size difference, I was hoping the 590 would be wide at root chord but even like it is, very nice.

Are those photos at the same scale?
