I will agree that your glide is more than likely the best it will get.
That however is still about like a cinder block.

The dynasoar boosts to 400 feet and has a descent rate of 13 feet per second. It's a 1:13.5 scale model so if you figure full scale decent rate that comes to a hundred and seventy-five feet per second...is that similar to what a lifting body was?

This is in 10 mile per hour wind with gusts of 14 and I was coming straight out the videographer about 6 feet away so, I jogged a little to the side and misjudged where the rail was, there's absolutely zero damage in the airplane.

It looked like no damage, but I just HAD to mention it !
That's a stiff wind for something weighing ~10oz. !
