The furthest glide is by definition the lowest glide angle! So if that is one of your design inputs, you should definitely go for that. But seriously, reducing weight and form drag gets you the furthest. 1. General glide distance theory With glide angle $\bar\gamma$ = -$\gamma$: \$\quad C_D \cdot \frac{1}{2} \rho V^2 \cdot S = W \cdot \text{sin }\bar\gamma \...
