split wings (despite their unpredictability) tended to fly farther than wings placed in the middle or ends of the straw (Figure 4, bottom).
Their conclusion therefore was that the best design for a loopy airplane was likely the one with thin wings made with short strips of paper and placed in split position on the straw, and would typically fly around 2 metres since the median flight for each of these categories (thin, short strip, split wing position) was around 2 metres.
