I've not had to replace a Ladybird motor or arm yet in 2 months and at conservatively 100 lipos worth of flying. So about 800minutes of flying. During this period I had no motor strikes or "hard-landing" damage that would contribute to most motor failures either, so that has to factor in
That said, spares are always good to have around and I hope that someone eventually finds these 7mm x 20mm with 1mm motor shaft ~20, 000Kv CW and CCW coreless motors at decent bulk pricing, Decent being defined as around $1ea
After all the commonly available 7mm x 16mm with 1mm motor shaft coreless motors are about 50 cents each in bulk

Not counting the time spent waiting for replacement motors to arrive, i've basically gone through three GeniusCP motors in about a week. I'd hate to go through that on a quad with four motors.
