The Armattan Rooster is the successor to the popular Armattan Chameleon. It's a great freestyle frame with awesome camera protection and with Armattan's legendary lifetime-warranty.

The Armattan Rooster originates from the Armattan Chameleon launched in December 2016 and served as base inspiration with the lessons learned and the community feedback and suggestions to the development of the Armattan Rooster, with lower CG (Center of Gravity) and the upgraded Titanium FPV cage maximizing the protection of the FPV camera in a frontal impact.
The Armattan Rooster brings it to a new level with stronger materials, improved design and better provisions coupled with the ability to swap arms. Even the Carbon fiber got upgraded in the design process for even more durability and strength to support the unique life time warranty.
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.
The Rooster uses new materials. 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. While this carbon will eventually be used in all of Armattan's frames, the Rooster will be the first to sport this upgrade. Another change is that the camera cage is now grade 5 titanium. By moving to a more expensive material Armattan has doubled the strength of the camera cage with support for 25 to 60 degrees of FPV cam tilt and at the same mass as the Chameleon's. supporting the Runcam Swift v2, the Foxeer Arrow v3 or any other standard-mount FPV camera with a 28.5mm case. The metal of the cage was also stretched from 4x4mm to 6x2mm to allow for the use of M3 hardware
The rear standoffs on the Rooster are also newly developed for this airframe. They extend out past the rear of the top and bottom carbon to protect from a direct rear impact. In addition, the bolt holes in the middle provides for modular antenna mounting plates: now available to serve and protect a wider variety of VTX's. Lastly the Rooster uses 12.9 grade steel bolts for increased strenght.
The rear design of the Rooster has some 'hidden' features that aren't obvious to the naked eye. The first option is the standard rear plate. This comes with 3 molded rubber components: a grommet for mounting the SMA adapter, and two cones to mount your RX antenna tubes. This should provide a clear and satisfying mount point for any pilot with any VTX. If you use a "Unify" style transmitter (that has two flanges on the sides of the SMA pigtail), you may prefer the optional rear-plate. That plate allows you to hard-mount the SMA adapter to the rear of your craft, and even provides you with a space below for a rear-mounted XT-60.
The rooster supports swappable arms and are clear of the center-stack, providing you with a more stack height. This allows you to make upgrades or change a broken arm without needing to unscrew the FC. In addition, the front arm slots around the titanium cage creating a bomb-proof mounting point. Lastly, the small, interior top-plates are completely optional. While they provide a bit more strength and an extra area to mount a VTX or RX, we feel strongly enough about the frame to warranty it with or without those two plates of carbon.
