    Good afternoon, Fellow Phantom Pilots!

    I was just curious after seeing some video's about a Phantom 3 crashing due to an engine failure. Since this year I'm also an owner of a Phantom 3 Professional. How many flying hours are you able to get out of your motor? Do you get a warning if one of the motors isn't functioning properly? Because I couldn't fine any information about the lifespan of these DJI motors. I rather replace them once in a while then having a crash.

    Looking forward to receive a reply!

    Kind Regards,

    "Engine failure" is a vague generic term that just means the motors stopped working but the cause might be completely unrelated to the motors themselves.
    Upstream of the motors, there's a lot of complex electronics and a battery.
    A failure in any of those components makes the motors stop.

    Brushless electric motors are very durable and low-maintenance.
