In conclusion we discovered that overall, the Mark 2 glider performed the best in our tests. We believe that because of the fins on the top and bottom of this glider, it can travel faster, straighter, and farther than the finless Mark 1 gliders. We concluded that if the Mark 2 glider had a smaller or lighter weight, it would even travel farther than the original one. The lighter weight would not make the nose of the glider to dip as far, causing it to travel at less of an angle. This would result in a farther distance but not a greater speed. Because we did not test the speed of the gliders, this would be pertinent to our experiment.
