    I have had my p3 pro for almost a year now. Just curious if anyone knows how long the motors are good for or if there are any obvious signs to look for. Hate to find out the hard way that i have a bad motor. Thanks

    You can check from time to time if you see difference in temperature between the motors after you landed. Their bearings have the most chance to be the first to fail and a first sign of failure is the increase of heat due to extra friction. Change in sounds can be also an indicator in general with bearing but I don't know if it apply in case of the P3.
