Versatile flying wing recommendation question

Hi there, I am looking into getting back into flying wing and FPV. I don't have a whole lot of experience but i did used to fly a wing wing z-84 with my fatsharks.
Looking into getting back into FPV with the new DJI digital fpv system.

I am looking for a wing based on a few requirements.
AUW under 1kg
Wing span under 1200mm
Top speed ≥160kph (100mph)
Being able to cruise for ≥20min at ≥80kph (50mph)
4S battery
I also want something that is relatively agile, having a higher wing loading affects manoeuvrability i believe.
Speed and flight time requirements above are my baseline, that being said if anything is unrealistic feedback is appreciated

Currently have my eye on the Sonicmodell CF wing (1030mm wingspan), which i believe is basically the same as the eachine fury wing, since it fits my size constraints and is easy to get in Australia.

The recommended battery size is for the Sonicmodell CF wing/Fury wing is 3s-4s 2200mah. For this setup I would use 4s 2200mah. That being said I am pretty flexible with what wing and battery size is being used as long as it fits within my size and weight constraints.

I had a play around with eCalc, as shown in the photo below. Any tips/recommendations to achieve what i want my wing to do will be appreciated

I fly a 4S 2200 in my PNP Fury, and get around 5-6 minutes of fast flying.

One of my favorite planes is the Sonicmodell 1213mm HD wing(aka as a Mako) Very versatile, tons of room, nice size, cheap kit, etc... I have an SK3 3536 1400kv motor, 60a ESC, and 7x6.5 prop, and fly 4S with a 2700-3700. Lots of possibilities. Mine is VERY stable, and reasonably fast(90ish?)

Physics, or is it fizzix?

Another one to consider is the Reptile S1100. I liked it enough to buy a second. I shaved off the twin motor pods and run a single on both, other people are doing the same. Motors used, 3536 (2814) 1200kv and 3542 (2820) 1250kv 8 x 4 prop on 6S 3300 or 4000. Top speed is 125 mph and will run 25 minutes at 50 mph. You could go with a higher kv motor and 4S. The wing is very stabile with none of the yawing around I see with many other wings. It's not expensive and replacement foam parts are available. It slows down enough to land it without trashing it.
