Armattan, world-renowned for their lifetime warranty, comes the latest frame - the Rooster!  From the same designer as the popular Armattan Chameleon, the Rooster features some of the same design concepts but takes it to another level.

When the Armattan Chameleon was released a year ago, it took the multirotor community by storm.  And while the minds behind it were relieved that the design was successful, they didn't stop there.  Comments and suggestions came in, and the team kept looking for any way they could improve upon the formula.  It took months of development and testing, but it's paid off. 

The Armattan Rooster is a compressed-x, freestyle frame.  At first glance, it may seem similar to the Chameleon, but if you look carefully, almost nothing beyond the shape is the same.

Armattan developed a new carbon fiber weave in conjunction with this frame.  It still has some spring, but is much less likely to delaminate in a high impact.  Another change is that the camera cage is now grade 5 titanium.  By moving to a slightly more expensive material, Armattan has doubled the strength of the camera cage at the same mass as the Chameleon's.  

You can fly safely with your cam anywhere from 25 to 60 degrees.  In addition, the center-point of the camera has been lowered in comparison to the Chameleon.  Now your rolls will show less vertical distortion as you bang the sticks.  The metal of the cage was also stretched from 4x4mm to 6x2mm to allow for the use of M3 hardware.  This is something that certainly would not have been possible without the incorporation of titanium. The Rooster comes in just under what the Chameleon weighs. 

The swappable arms are clear of the center-stack, providing you with a couple extra millimeters of stack height while maintaining a 20mm deck height.  This also allows you to make upgrades or change a broken arm without needing to unscrew the FC.  

Did you just say warranty? **
