Default how long does a 3.7V single cell 200 MAH battery last and where to get replacement

Hi, one day my daughter came from school carrying around this electric toy. She sed
one guy needed lunch money so he brought it to skool and sold it to her. Anyways its
almost like those heli max but I know it aint one because it has no marking what so ever saying
heli max. The only thing its says is X-flite on the side. Well toy or not it works and flies but the battery
dont seem to last too long. I was wondering if its normal or not at all. IT charges thru a USB and last about
5 mins of playing. Can this be replaced if so where can I get one I dont want the ones coming from Honk
Kong shipping will take forever.

Well, it all depends on the amp draw... you should not try to (and will not) get the full 200mAh from it no matter what rate you draw from it (maybe 80%.... 160mAh).... so if the amp draw is 2A it will last less than 5 minutes... if it is 6A... maybe a minute and a half.... and so on.
