I've had my P3P for 4 days now, I was wondering what future maintenance should be done. How long should you run the same props, do you change motors out after a set amount of air time

Welcome to the forum. I have a PV2+ also & I use the same maintenance on it. I keep the shell clean & check for any cracks, etc. Monthly when flying a lot, I make sure the screws are snug. As far as props, if they are not damaged, nicked, or any visible problem, you should not need to change them, Unless, the center Hub gets worn (the hub on the P3 is plastic unlike the PV2+ which is metal). With regards to the motors, they are supposed to be very long lasting, several thousand hours. Just check them before flight to make sure they spin freely with no binding. Good luck & enjoy your new quad.

Grease the gimbal and motors once a week. Change the IMU oil twice a year. Otherwise your good to go

He's joking and sending you off track. No oil is needed.

Too late I just pumped axle grease into all the motors.
