Ok, so I'm pretty new to helis and 3D is really not for me. just want to fly pretty casual with loops, rolls and inverted somtime in the future. Would like to know what heli you recommend for long flight times, somewhere between 10-15 min. I would prefer in the 500 or 600 calss size. Any suggestions?

In nitro, a 30 class heli will probably get you 10-12 minutes and let you do the loops and rolls. Keep the head speed mild... say 1600-1700. I flew 15% in mine with a 32 and got 12 minutes. A 30 class will not have the climbout rates that the 50 has. There is a trade-off for power and flight times.

I'm only interested in electric with 10-15 min flight times, very mild flying. Is that possible? in the 500-600 class range?

To get long flight time with electric is weight very important. Logo 500-600 or hurrice 550 has low weight.

Use low headspeed that will improve the flight time, vbar will also improve the flight time.

It is really not so much wich heli you choose, it is more about the setup.

Choose one that has low weight, use low headspeed and big flightpacks, them will there be no problem having 10-15 mins in flight-time.

run two batteries in parralel and you will more than double your flighttime. As bth batteries run more efficiently with less amp draw per battery.

If you're not after the POP, then a 50 size heli can easily cope with the extra weight from an additional battery(s) and still perform the more gentle manouvers with ease. There are a couple of bits that rob some power, like a belt drive and moreover, the flybar so a torque tube tail drive and flybarless setup will buy you extra time.
At the expense of inverted performance, assymetrical blades will offer much improved efficiency in non inverted flight.
I would expect these measures would give you 20 minutes or more flight time.
