I chopped a big chunk outa the middle and moved the motor forward by nearly 3 inches, which in turn moved the CG forward by about 3/4". It is much more stable now, but also much louder.

The easiest way to up your flying time is with additional batteries. Fly 5 minutes. Swap batteries. Fly 5 minutes. Repeat.

Unless you have a particular need for long, individual flights.
