DHW collectors/mixed sizes

Building #2  4'W X7'H collectors and have room between them,under a window, for a 5'H collector.
Would this be a bad idea because of possible unequal flow volume?
When connecting 2 to 4 collectors together are all inlets always connected together in one continuous connection
and same for outlets?
Thanks for any ideas!

Mike, yes try to connect the bottoms of each panel together in series and the same with the top. Put the supply or input on one side of the bottom of the panels and the output on the opposite side on the top so you get a cross flow. Of course each panel will have it's own flow due to it's internal resistance But they will all work the same with the hot fluid rising up to the top.
