On my first LPP, I managed a 6:24 in a 35' scrubbable ceiling. If you have a decent site, I'd say 6 minutes is a good goal.

My best locally was 12:30 something in 42' ceiling in Racine, WI.

Decent flights depend a LOT on height and how safe the ceiling is.
9-10 minutes in Racine is good. You can bounce around pretty safely there.
9 minutes in Oshkosh at EAA would mean bouncing around like a pinball machine.

Regards.

My times are probably skewed because I do all my flying at 6000 feet (about 1800 meters) above sea level. Also, the Split Decision is an open penny (and a biplane), so I'd imagine 8-9 minutes would be achievable.
