FD is by far the best disc I've thrown in a long time. Probably my favorite "true" fairway.

Innova Champion Beast, the X-mold. The first disc I launched beyond 500' roughly ~524' verifying as best I could via Google Maps (only did it a couple of times on flat ground doing field work).

After that, I'd honestly have to say an Aviar. With good form these easily can get out to 300' for me. I don't toss them that far often, but I know if I need to I can launch a Star out thereto close to 300' or a Champion a few feet outside circle 1 on a 300' tee.

Lots of FD mentions here...

I don't get it because I throw my seasoned Star Eagle further than my FD's every time. I must just click with them better. I get more distance out of Rocs when compared to Buzzz as well, never could figure out why.

I don't know how far most people throw their fairways but I think FD's are easy to throw 300-330' because they have trusty stability there so they aren't finicky but also won't fade out like a Teebird likely would. Also for someone throwing fairways in that range they can get FD's to carry a huge anny distance line...so I get why it's been mentioned a lot. When past that fairway distance say 340-350+ I think lots of fairways fly the same range for me, you're getting pretty much anything straight-ish up to speed and they will hold off on the fade.

I think the thing to keep in mind too is how seasoned is your star Eagle and what's a new one like? Whereas you can just buy an FD and have it go pretty straight and far. Personally I can throw a beat Teebird farther and straighter but they are pretty neck and neck honestly...however out of the box that's a different story.

I really think it's a power thing...for a while I could throw a Buzzz farther than a Roc but now I bet it's the same. There's a power range that I think most typical disc golfers are at where I do think a FD is longer than lots of fairways and a Buzzz is longer than a typical Roc. Then everything evens out again...then at even more power I think it becomes what disc can handle your power and not get touchy.

Cd2. A nice seasoned c line can by hyper flipped, and goes great with the more overstable domed s line, or roaming thunder. I have no problems ripping them 330-350.
