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.
First and foremost, 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 slightly more expensive material, Armattan has doubled the strength of the camera cage at the same mass as the Chameleon's. 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 stainless steel, flathead bolts. Besides the low profile making bolts less likely to damage LiPos or cameras, this hardware is terribly strong. You will find that you'll strip your driver long before you damage your hardware, and the weight gain over using aluminum is minimal.
