    Its a question that keeps coming up at flight club with some guys having a serious amount of Ks on the clock with long haul flights and wondering when to swap out for new motors with the bearings being the main worry. Do dji even have a life span and a recommendation on when to change them cos i cant find any info on this topic on the net.

    As you noted it comes down to bearings.

    DJI is silent on this issues as the motors have lifespans of hundreds of hours and will likely outlast most other parts on the a/c.

    As long as they feel smooth your good.
