I would first check for spark immediately after it stops, It sounds to me like a coil that is breaking down when it gets hot. After cooling it will heal and restart.

I started out with nothing and now I only have half of that left !

Welcome.

Agree, coil is probably the problem.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Check the gas first. Mine did that then it got worse. Finally it didn't restart. I took the hose off the carb and I had no gas flow. I blew into the carb hose and heard a pop in the gas tank. I had something blocking the gas flow above the fuel bowel. It never stalled again.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Sonny your right if the gas is ok check the coil and condenser for a gap in the windings that opens up when it gets hot
