Research on how does changing the shape of a paper airplane's wing affect it's flight?

Research shows that for a stunt paper airplane, smaller wings with forward-concentrated weight are optimal. For a glider, make a large wingspan and light, evenly balanced weight. Also, the wider the wings are the easier it will be to gain lift and the more narrower the wings are the harder it will be to stay in the air longer.
