There is no documented life expectancy. For most people, they only have to be replaced after being damaged in a crash or from damage by misuse.

Yes - in fact, in most cases, if a motor seems to be having issues, it's usually the ESC causing the problem...

Motors have much longer life compared to P3 :)

Same style motors and process for determining serviceability as other RC toys. Manually manipulate motor body feeling for end float, axial play and any roughness/binding. You have four so an opportunity to identify any inconsistencies. Also feel after flight for one that may be significantly warmer than others. Fly with confidence.

It's hard to say, depending on the weather conditions, how aggressive you fly, how many times a day, etc.... But I should imagine 2 years if your going out on about 8-10 flights a week but I'm not 100% on that lol

The bearings are the only wearing part. If you don't expose them to trauma they'll last hundreds of hours.
