Quick charging on Lipo's means anything over 1C (charging at the capacity of battery), for the V911 cells that means over 120mA or 130mA depending on battery type.

The Charger that comes with the Heli must charge at 2C (240ma or there abouts) to charge your batteries in approx half and hour.

The only lipo's i have for my various fixed wing aircraft that get charged at 2C sometimes are LoongMax Tipples which are rated for 5C charge, although i dont charge at that to prolong life.

When i charge my heli batteries on proper charger i charge 4 in parallel at 200mA, the charger always drops to to lower level as batteries near 3/4 charge in any case.

Reduction in flight time may mean your motor is on the way out, does it get hot, on mine main motor stays cool to touch and tail motor barley warm, stays cold if fly outdoors. Could even be hairs on shaft producing drag.
