Depends on throttle usage

Minimum flight time = battery-capacity (Amps) / motor discharge rate (Amps) * 60 minutes.

So, 1500mAh battery, 10A motor discharge, 1.5 / 10 * 60 = 9 minutes.

Of course, then you have to factor in things like being safe, so cut that back to 65~75% to leave yourself enough power to safely land.
