    Just thought I would start a sort of fun thread talking about hours and what not. So how many hours do you have on your P4 so far?

    I just hit the 3 hour mark. Which to me feels like an accomplishment;) hahaha

    I am on the field every weekend and on holidays and spend considerable time with different "equipments/ gadgets/drones/helis...". I don't like to track where I spent most of my time. :) All is fun.

    That's awesome! But if you had to guess how many hours you have on your P4, could you? Just for fun

    According to healthydrones in 129 flights totalling 249 miles it was 20:22 airtime. Working great so far.

    Thanks.. I've been flying same P4 since I got it last April (there was still snow on the ground here back then). I live in the country so I can just step out the back door and I've got miles of fields and forest to fly over.

    Motors last a long time. The only moving parts are the bearings. I don't think DJI publishes the mean time before failure, but many brushless motors last thousands of hours. There are many P3's and P2's with WAY more hours than I have still using the same motors.

    That's awesome! That's the beauty of brushless motors! I've read that oiling the bearings every now and then is a good idea and I've also heard not to oil them since they are sealed and adding oil will just collect more dirt and grime. I'm not too sure

    The bearing are lubed and sealed and there is no need to try to oil and as you mentioned it will only atract dust, These little bearings are tough and should last many many hours. We all know the variables and if we don't smack them they will last. The day my bearings get tired I will just buy new motors all complete because they are inexpensive, and since I have the AC open might as well change all 4 because if one motor is failing because of age the others can't be far behind.

    Since May this year, all flights have been fantastic. Indoors flights only account flight time, but not distance (no GPS)

    29 hours, 11 minutes. I show to have 109 flights but some of those were of my bird spinning up or hovering in my living room while I mess with the settings. [​IMG]
