Sitting in the shadows of the Rooster flagship launch is the fast and agile Mongoose mini quad frame for 5" props. This one comes from the Lite series, it does not carry the same warranty as flagships like the Chameleon and the Rooster but coming from Armattan and at this price point, the Mongoose can take on the best frames and come back for more. The overall layout of this frame is immediately familiar, yet the designer, Jason Hay together with Armattan (This is actually their first stretched X release!) have added some flourishes to make the Mongoose stronger. The front stand-offs have integrated camera mounting lugs and are milled from aluminium, there are no 3D printed parts here.
Included are stainless steel bolts and detachable arms with 3M sticky foam pads for top and bottom battery mounting and a nice armattan battery strap.
The recommended parts for the Mongoose are 2306/2450kv motors with 30A ESCs and 5 inch propellers with a 4s/5s 1300mAh Li-Po.

Technical Details for Armattan Mongoose 5" Racing Quadcopter
Excellent with a warning.
Armattans take on a Hyperlite Floss , usual Armattan high quality carbon and parts ..but the hardware supplied is terrible. The sunken nuts in my kit had no thread in 4 of the six supplied. Do yourself a favour and use your own hardware from the start , you can't beat a nylon nut !!!
Response: Please contact us if you have a hardware problem so that we can rectify it, thanks.
