40 degrees is a lot. Try it out. If they perform good enough for what you are after - who cares! If not, you found one point to improfe.

It seems like the relation of the arc length compared to the two legs is not ok then. Usually the arc should be about half the wafelength, the legs about a quarter. Note though that the correction factor to apply differs between the SPW and the CL antenna.
