Assuming I am in an open field.
What will be the optimal height to fly in order to get max distance ?

Whatever height allows for a clear line between the bird and the controller. I flew a mile over the ocean @ 75ft, and I flew a mile at a park @ 200ft because of trees.

I did stead ascend up to 400' down wind, stronger winds at the top.. then dropped down to about 100' coming back into wind (less wind at 100' for me) and easily made it to 1.2mi

After reading several threads it seems between 200ft and 300ft is the best height for range.

Even with clear line of site I find getting a little extra elevation helps. I think even on flat ground you will find 300' will take you further than 100' elevation.
