If I want to experiment with a dropper post on a Flaanimal 5, 56cm frame, what is the recommended travel? No previous dropper experience so let me know if I’m missing anything else.

This depends entirely on how aggressive you will ride the bike. I tend to only recommend droppers to people who will trial ride their drop bar bike. For normal gravel there is no real advantage.
Most “gravel” droppers are only 40-50mm which isn’t really a lot but does help get the saddle out of the way.
PNW makes 90mm and 120mm and I’ve run both with success, but I don’t think most people would use 120mm very often.
On my bike I would probably go for something around 90mm.
