This may sound flippant (not intended), but what do you consider "best" with regards to the broad term "efficiency". Efficiency is often thought of as the least input for a given output. What is your output?

Are you tying to maximize endurance, range, or speed?

Example: My Taylorcraft burns 4GPH, while my Rocket burns 12GPH - which is more efficient?

If the per hour cost is considered, then the T-craft is very cheap flying indeed. However, if the cost per mile traveled is important, then the Rocket comes out on top.
