There are so many variables to flight times... it's easy to assume about 10 minutes depending on weight and how you fly. More sport flying = less time, general hover = more time. It's best to just test it then check your battery to see how much you ran it down (I start with 6 mins.... then 8.... then 10mins...
I think hovering consumes more power then flying forward.
