    I didn't realize your 12 years old, and I wish I would have discovered this hobby when I was that age you lucky dog ! I feel younger everyday though as I venture forward into this hobby. (38 now).

    On your Trex 450 SA you can increase your flight time by reducing the number of teeth on your pinion. You'll get more flight time generally with a 11t than you would with a 15t for example. The lighter your heli the better also, for increased flight times... There is a lot of variables that can make a difference including what your curves are set at, the battery your using, the temperature outside, the tightness of the belt, etc. etc.

    If your running the stock Align 3550 kv motor you can start with trying out an 11t pinion for starters if you haven't already and see if that helps ya some on acquiring a couple more minutes of flight time.....


    Hope this may help a bit, and hopefully you'll get some more tips from others in achieving your goal.



    Cheers,
