    I have one motor that when spun by hand (without the props) makes a rattling sound....it still flies okay, but I think perhaps the bearings might be bad. Should I swap out that motor?

    Well if it sounds different than the rest than at least an inspection is in order.

    Mounting.
    Something rubbing.
    You may just have some foreign material in there.
