    For a stock phantom, has anyone a clue as to the life expectancy of the motors? My Phantom is not very old but I'm noticing at shut down some motors will spin a bit longer then another, and those ones that stop first seem a bit stiffer then the other two. In flight sometimes the craft sounds like its, well, to use an aviation term it sound like the props are feathering and at other times the props are really digging into the air. I also have a lot of jello effect, and I mean more then the average amount even without the gimbal

    Mine was fine for at least 8 months. It all depends on use and crashes.
