With the 800mm blades, I am getting 10 minutes safely with a 60D on the front. To be honest, this setup is probably overkill for a 550/60D, but the idea was that if anything happened it would actually autorotate in a safe (ish) manor.

I have been told that I could push it out to 12 mins but have never needed to.

The 800mm stretch just gives you a more manageable disc loading/flight characteristics in my opinion. Not a necessity but I think its worth it in reliability and safety - plus flight times are better.
