ALMOST TOO SCARED to review this!! TBS oblivion review



IMPORTANT UPDATE: I dont think i would be a very good reviewer if I couldnt admit when I got things wrong and I think it is important to address a few errors in this vid. 1. a technical thing about the oblivion. the 2nd camera option allows for more tilt. 2. I was worried about how TBS would react but since the release of this video they have actually been quite open about the points raised during the video and I had the complete wrong impression with how they would react. TBS even after such a negative review were still happy for my to review things from them in the future and said they would be fine with any comments I have about their stuff. They were accepting of everything i raised and my findings but did point out how I was wrong about how cheap the frame is to produce. It does actually cost far more than what we stated in our review. sorry everyone we got that one wrong. I was expecting a bit of flame from them but they have been really professional.
Also saying JB was scared was a poor choice of words, he does a fantastic job and is a stand up member of our community. he tells it like its and never holds back. you can see JB’s thoughts on reviewing the Oblivion here

    Brilliant review Stu! 100% agree very outdated components, the escs aint even dshot, old F3 board which is disappointing too. It seems to me like its been a good marking platform to clear out old inventory. Lovley frame though and will be great to just buy standalone and add your own components.

    Someone should design a pod for this with camera protection. no cam protection on this seems silly.

    I bought 2 oblivion frames because I'm tired of not flying because of broken parts.

    In my region(Germany) I would have to pay about 300USD for a custom drone thats not imported from China, which I don't like to do, because of taxes, fees …. The components would be mostly the same tier, so in my view this TBS drone looks very nice for a beginner like me. All in all I would have to pay 400€+ for a custom set vs. 500€+ for the Oblivion with custom gear, but it works out of the box, sooo I don't know what to do

    So for 300 dollars, the new TBS drone comes with a crappy dipole antennae instead of a TBS Triumph ? WTF? Fail . Not to mention the underpowered motors and lackluster ESC's . Go get yourself a Mojo 230 if your looking for a BNF in this price range.. Mojo 230 smokes this thing and its 329.99 now…

    Good review Stu; as a noob to FPV I chose the Oblivion and whilst it is a cracking little flyer for someone entering the sport, the ease for beginners is just BS. I had a nightmare getting the thing ready to fly. However now I've got it in the air, it's spot on for a noob. I've crashed it numerous times and the only thing I've had to replace is the props.

    Not for me and I guess I am a cashed up slightly more advanced than beginner but a big naaa not for me. when you look at catalyst only slightly more expensive for there 3"  and even the xjb so many more better performers out there, and let's face it these days it's pretty easy to Youtube how to use betaflight

    2018 drone from TBS. Lol. The whole set, i just like the frame. Maybe will DIY drone using those frame.

    Looks great for beginners and I think the price is ok too. Beginners want something solid for crashes and this higher price may save money in the long run.

    Beginner's drone with a price tag for the pro? Epic failure!

    That reminds me of the "i pissed off trappy"-T-Shirts i saw in a fpv-related video a year ago.

    Dont know if someone already mentioned, but the Oblivion comes with 4 Single ESC on 4 separat boards. I was hoping for 2 2in1 ESC, but it finally its the big powercube.
