The old argument "Well, you get shorter flight times with electric..." is just not accurate. I get 10 minutes on my 600 electric per flight and could squeeze 12 if I babied it.
It may not be accurate for you but you haven't given enough info in your argument. You CAN get 10+ mins flight time on an electric but you have to be taking it really easy! My protos goes for 3 mins for example! My 700e goes for 4.5mins and ive tamed it down! My n5 goes for 8 mins.

60% of the time, it works every time!

The duration of the flight is proportional to the TYPE of flying done.

My 12S Freya can:
-hover+easy Fwd flight for 12 minutes (1600rpm)
-fly combination 5.5min hover + 4min of fast aerobatics (1550/2050rpm)
-6.5 minutes of balls out fast aerobatics.

All based on 80% of my 5000ma packs.
Even after toning down my collective I still have way more power than I ever had with nitro. You just learn how to be responsible, or stuff will break! Another benefit is that well setup electrics are really smooth.

Big power costs big money, but it will put a smile in your face.

I fly electrics strickly for competition. I kept my nitros for the other fun stuff.

Unless you are sick of nitro helis, or really have the need for 1000hp on tap, stay with your nitro helis.

The end goal is to have fun.
