Team BlackSheep Mambo radio transmitter is the first radio with Built-in Tracer TX module.
TBS Mambo radio size is bigger than compact radios (like Tango 2, Jumper T12, Radiomaster TX12) but slightly smaller than full size radios (like Jumper T16, Radiomaster TX16S, Taranis X9D). TBS calls it “full size compact radio”.
You can find the standard JR external module bay on the back of the radio. You can equip it with the Crossfire, Multiprotocol or any other JR sized module.
There are rubber grips on the sides of the Mambo radio. Also there is USB-C charging and data port on the bottom of the radio.
TBS Mambo radio has dial wheel for easy navigation in FreedomTX menus.
TBS Mambo has the same full size gimbals as in the TBS Tango 2.
There are two push buttons on the top side of the radio, like it is in the TBS Tango 2.
TBS Mambo Ethix Special Edition radio
There is the TBS Mambo Ethix Special Edition radio with a few notable changes that are more tailored to the likings of Mr. Steele & Konasty pilots.
The Ethix Special Edition radio has gun metal coloring theme with more gritty texture for added grip.
Switches have anti slip rubber caps. Notice the potentiometer pot with “SEND” and “11” markings – this is special Mr. Steele design.
There is extra grips on the sides of the radio.
Stick ends have special crown design.
TBS Mambo Ethix Edition has retractable kicks-stand in the back.
And comes with the Ethix neck strap.

Inside the TBS Mambo radio
All the TBS Mambo radio electronics fit in on the one single board. Even the switches are soldered onto the same board. Mambo radio has integrated PCB antenna and the U.FL connector for optional external antenna.
I recommend to watch LIVYU video for TBS Mambo teardown and review of the inner side of the radio.
