Default e-flight rv9 450. help with longer flight times

Hi. I have just finished building the latest addition to my collection, a e-flight rv9 450. flew it for the first time today and its a nice little flyer, however I only got about 4 mins runtime out of it. I had to stick to the budget with this one so I decided to run with a turnigy motor and esc from hobby king. The motor is a Turnigy aerodrive 1450kv D3536/5, the esc is a Turnigy Trust 55a, battery is a dualsky xpower 2200 20c, and prop is a apc 115.5e.
Is there anything I can do to make this set up more efficient to achieve a longer run time. Any help would be appreciated, thanks guys.

Typically I would recommend playing with propellers. That is about all you can do.
