What vendor would you recommend for a complete set of spare motors?
I ordered some about 5 minutes ago from Dave's Discount Motors.
Here in the USA Atlanta Hobby has good prices and fast shipping.
Here is a link for Atlanta Hobby.
You will need 2 CW and 2 CCW motors.

The Vision and Vision + have the same motors?
Yes, they are exactly the same.
Keep in mind there are two different motors on the Phantom, counter clock wise and clock wise (CWW and CW)
Now for the newbs, why do we need spares? Aren't these things supposed to last forever?
My F450 motors are a couple of yrs old.
How common is it that these motors go bad?
I wouldnt worry it about unless you crashed it or something.
From what I can tell the motors don't really wear out.
The bearings in the motors do wear out.
When that happens you can either replace the motor, or replace the bearings. As I understand it, there are better bearings on the market that are more efficient, and last longer.
When a bearing goes bad it is obvious, and loud. (So I am told)
Aerial Media Pros.
If a bearing goes bad it's probally cheaper to replace the motor.
