TBS STARDUST SB5 Race

*Also available is the “Pro” version which can be found here: TBS Stardust SB5 Pro

The TBS Stardust SB5 Race edition takes frame engineering to the next level, without breaking the bank. Molded by hand, built with respect to the material’s properties.

HAND MADE & MOLDED

When cutting frames out of flat plates is not enough! All frames are molded by hand, starting with raw carbon fibers. With this process the material reaches unparalleled stiffness, which translates to superior flight performance, resilience to vibrations and insane robustness in crashes. This is the next step in race frame design!

This is a involved build. It does not include motor mounting screws, or stack screws. It’s a tight fit, but most of the 4in1 ESC’s will fit. I personally recommend using the new Spedix LS40 Slim 40A F4 Core 3-6S BLHeli32 Individual ESC’s w/RGB LED since they are literally the the perfect dimensions to fit neatly on top of the thinnest portion of the SB5’s arms without any overlap/overhang! We strongly suggest the use of mounting boards for VTx’s and receivers. Cameras should be micro size. I recommend using the RunCam Micro Eagle for a perfect fit and a crystal clear image! (I tested this camera and confirmed that it fits perfectly even at a high angle without sticking out past the metal camera cage!)

RACE VERSION

The RACE version wastes no time in making things pretty. We pack as many carbon strands into the mold as we can, and we give it a good sanding when it comes out. That’s it. If you’re trying to win a beauty contest, this is not the frame for you. Then again, this is drone racing!! We’re also including steel screws, as they are a bit more forgiving to snapping under hard impacts, and they allow us to further lower the price.

Recommended Electronics:

ESC’s: Check out the new Spedix LS40 Slim F4 Core 3-6S BLHeli32 Individual ESC’s w/RGB LED! They are only 9mm wide so they fit perfectly on the arms of the TBS Stardust so those of you who prefer the reliability and ease of access of externally mounted individual ESC’s over the now common 4-in-1 designs!

FPV Camera: I recommend using the RunCam Micro Eagle for a perfect fit and a crystal clear image! (I tested this camera and confirmed that it fits perfectly even at a high angle without sticking out past the metal camera cage!)
