    Hey,
    Iam a happy owner of the P2v+ and are wondering if there have been any tests on motors, lifetime (flight hours)
    I saw a video of the S1000 hovering for 72 hours to show of the durability of the engines, have some tried the same with the Phantom series?

    Not that I'm aware of. The bearings will have a lifespan - just make sure checking for play on the motor shafts is part of your pre-flight checks and routine maintenance and you'll catch them before it gets too bad. Replacement bearing sets are available online and there are plenty of YouTube videos showing you how to replace them.
