Jank said:If 22% of each wing has got got inly 70% lift, then the totasl loss over the entire wing is 9%.

each wing is 18.5 feet. 11.43 feet of which are developing 100% lift. 4.07 feet of which are developing only 70% lift. (30% less)

With 11.43 feet developing 100% lift and 4.07 feet developing 70% lift therre is 9% less lift than if the entire 18.5 feet developd 100% lift.

Each wing is about 18.5 feet, 14.5 feet of which is developing about 98.1% lift and 4 feet of which is devloping about 91.4% (I erroneously used 70% in my earlier post - you must have missed where Soren corrected me!).

The problem in your math is that 11.43 + 4.07 = 15.5, not 18.5. Somewhere you lost 3 feet off each wing!
