Armattan Chameleon frame protector and soft motor mount kit
Specifically designed to fit the Armattan Chameleon, these TPU 3D printed frame protectors solve two problems. Well three if you count looking great.
- They protect your frame against knocks and bumps and keeps the frame in great condition.
- They are soft mounts for your motors. It's been shown many times that soft mounting your motors reduces vibration and helps you achieve that smooth buttery flying. It also helps with reducing propwash oscillation. Although the Chameleon isn't a particularly noisey quad and doesn't vibrate too much, these soft mounts still help make it fly more smoothly.
They are very easy to fit. Simply remove the four motor mounting bolts, slide the mount under the motor, put the bottom soft mount under the frame and fix with the supplied washers. You will need to supply your own new longer bolts. They need to be 3mm longer than the ones you currently use. Make sure the new bolts don't interfere with the motor windings.
The penny washer must be fitted because it spreads the load on the soft mount and helps isolate the bolt from the frame.
The bolts may need thread lock to stop them coming unscrewed. Don't tighten them up too tight or the effect of the soft mount is reduced. Also, because the printing process means the mount may vary in thickness slightly, so always check the bolts don't touch the motor coil windings.
Adding 4 mounts to your Chameleon, will add about 13g, which will have minimal effect to the quad's performance.
The soft mount kit includes;
- 4 x top frame protector and soft mount
- 4 x bottom soft mount
- 16 x M3 x 9mm washers
You'll need to supply your own thread lock, motor bolts and the Chameleon shown pictured isn't included!
