Considering going electric, primarily due to the lower entry costs as opposed to a gasser. What is about the longest flight times you can expect out of a 550E 3GX as it comes, with a 6S 5100 pack....and are there things that can be done to improve flight times? We're talking sport flying here, not 3D.

A smaller pinion gear is the beat way to improve flight time.

I can't comment on sport flying but I recently dropped mine to a 15T pinion (16T is stock) and now get 4.5 mins hard 3D. I guess if I was to hover my setup in normal mode I would get about 10 mins so anything between 4.5 and 10 mins depending how you fly. Ide guess 6-7 mins sport flying is possible.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I run 550's and ice 100, scorpion 4025/100, 2000N, 2100 idleup1, and 220 idleup 2. I get a solid 6 minutes, 30% left in packs with the 2200 headspeed. NO 3d. Just loopin, rolling, fliping. At 2000 headspeed i can get over 7. If you are just cruising around, with say a 1800 headspeed, i bet you can get almost 10.
