    Should we be replacing the motors on our quads after xxx amount of hours?

    No. Unless damaged they should fly for a long time. Damage is typically foreign object / water.

    There have been a number of threads on this. Oddly enough, it seems nobody has ever had a motor that has worn out due to normal use.

    The only moving/wearing part is the bearings.
