Juste a note here: endurance and range are not driving the variables the same way when designing an airframe. The power plant (engine + propeller + alternator) has to be optimized for the requirement as well. Once again, the optimal point is not the same for endurance or for range.

Any design is a compromise and as long as a clear requirement doesn't exist on paper it is hard to define de best "tool"to achieve it (or come close to it).
