The Mongoose is the newest entry into Armattan's Lite series frames, it is built to be inexpensive, strong, and light. with 61 grams it is less than half of the weight and price of the fabled Armattan Chameleon Ti. Even so, the high quality carbon fiber, aluminum, and stainless steel hardware provides a robust air frame that you'll have to work to break.
One of the unique weight-saving features of this frame starts with the front standoff. By using a piece of custom designed 3D CNC'd aluminum it combines the forward structure of the frame with a FPV camera mount. This will fit and protect any of the 19 mm micro FPV cameras like the Runcam micro series. Another feature of that standoff is that it continues down to help secure the arm. By doing this on each of the corners, the total number of bolts needed to assemble this stretched-x racer was reduced to 12.
Set and sunk between the arms is the stack provision for this frame. Either 30.5mm or 20mm flight controllers will fit perfect and either it will be easy to accommodate multiple boards with the provided 23 mm of headroom. Also, since the stack is set between the arms, swapping an arm will be easy. Remove 2 screws to take out the old, and put them back to install the new arm, no need to fiddle with the stack. And by the way, since the arms are a bit thinner at 3mm, motor bolts are provided so you can avoid running the risk of shorting your motor windings to your frame.
As you likely know the debate between batteries mounted on top or bottom rages on. That's why this frame can support batteries in either location. It'll even come with 2 custom LiPo protection pads to help keep your battery where it belongs. Lastly the zip tie holes in the top plate provide a clean, solid mount for your VTX antenna. There's much less to worry about snapping your SMA adapter when it isn't exposed to a direct impact.
