I'm just tuning in my first TREX 450 I was wondering how much flight time I can expect from a 2100 battery?

About 4-6 minuets depending on motor, head speed, etc.

Same here. I set my timer for 6:40. That way when it goes off I bring it back in and land. Its right at 7:00. I only put back about 1500mah.

Are you using a Align esc. The lowest the align 35amp esc can run is 2.9volts per cell. AirThunder can go as low a 2.0volts per cell. With a esc that allows no voltage protection I can imagine you could put another 45 secs to a min on that time using airthunders or kong power cells.

I run the 35X align esc. 2.9 volts per cell is around 6:45-7 mins on my setup, this pulses my motor.

I'm running a 450SA with stock motor, esc (4.8volt) and 2100mah batt. (I think it's a 35G esc and 430x motor). I get over 14 minutes hovering at low headspeed and over 11 minutes flying in idle up - high headspeed. (Sorry, don't have a tach so I can't tell you rpm).
