LIFETIME WARRANTY ON THE ENTIRE FRAME (FRONT TO BACK)
*Note: Our frame kits have rounded arm ends instead of the original V1 that has cutouts
The Armattan Chameleon is a lovingly calculated, dedicated freestyle frame developed and produced by Armattan Quads. As a new flagship model, every included feature was carefully considered and artfully incorporated into the final revision. While many of those features are fairly traditional, there are a few innovations that would benefit from a closer examination. The first is the "low-rider" style top-plate. This lowered mount gets the battery closer to the center of gravity for this machine. This means your rolls and flips will be snappier, and less likely to over-rotate. An unexpected (but very welcome) feature of the recessed top-plate is that the camera cage will be more likely to protect your battery in the event of an upside-down impact. Your wallet and batteries will both thank you for that one.
Speaking of the camera cage, the 4mm thick, 6061 aluminum structure on the front of this frame corners the market for providing the most protection and versatility in mounting your cameras. Not only will your frame fully protect your FPV camera above 25 degrees but it allows for near unlimited vertical play. If you want to fly backwards like Suki or take things at a more relaxed pace, this will let you achieve the angle you need. Plus, Armattan's thumb-screw system makes it easy to switch between the two on the fly (pun totally intended). In addition, the HD camera mounting plate allows you to adjust the angle of your recording device from 30 up to 60 degrees. No more will you have to cut and mount a wedge of foam in order to get the ideal, "single" recording angle (as if that exists). You can fine tune larger or smaller as desired with your standard M3 driver. What could be simpler than that?
The third and final Chameleon innovation (that we will explore here) is the VTX mount on the rear of the bus. While it is outwardly a solid point to mount your SMA adapter, it has a couple secret functions as well. Cut into the carbon fiber top-plate are a set of holes that line up above where you will mount your VTX. These were carefully measured to align with the screens, dip-switches, and buttons of many popular transmitters on the market today (Hawkeye, Aomway, etc). We think changing your channel at the field should be as quick and easy as changing your camera angle. This helps us achieve that goal. The other secret is the little bar next to the SMA hole. This is a diversity receiver mount for your RX of choice. If you zip two ties to that spar you can angle them for horizontal (out the back) and vertical (out the top) polarization. This should help prevent against an unforgiving fail-safe at the start of your greatest dive yet.
Warranty: In the unfortunate instance that you meet the ground at a high rate of speed (and damage does occur), Armattan is offering a full bumper-to-bumper warranty for the Chameleon frame. Included in the list price is a warranty that covers all of the pieces (both Carbon Fiber AND Aluminum) for that added peace of mind.

Couldn't be more impressed with this frame. Everything is immaculate. I'm a TAS teacher in a NSW High School and we ended up studying the frame as an example of top quality carbon fibre workmanship. Anodized oarts were fantastic too. The kit was missing the nylon nuts for the FC and PDB but they were only about $2 from Jaycar so no stress there.
I will be buying Armattan products again and I'll be using Nemo's for many future purchases, excellent quick postage and quick to answer questions.
Wonderfully thick lightweight carbon frame, oozes quality. Lifetime warranty on the frame added bonus. Customer service from Nemo's also fantastic! Would definately recommend.

Pretty awesome frame! Nice to build, you can see plenty of thought gone into detail. Lifetime guaranteed - BONUS
I have always had the best service from nemo, fast replies and best stock avalibility. I love my chameleon and buying every thing from the same supplyer saved a lot in shipping.
