I cannot vouch for the lifetime of these motors/ESCs, and I don't know if you can buy the tiny ESC separately, but considering these motors cost just $15 each, you can buy one easily when one breaks, or just buy 10 in advance or something.
All you would have to do is just wire these up to the LiPo (recommended 2S-3S), whether it is via a PDB or a direct connection, and you are basically good to go. A cheap LiPo like this Lumenier one here should do the trick:
