WHAT IS IT?
As the “younger sibling” to the Chameleon, the Armattan Japalura is the fanciest micro frame around, and the second design in Armattan’s selection that features aluminum protection. Inspired by many of the same principals as the Chameleon, the Japalura is a lighter, more compact package that still supports many of today’s FPV standards. This “3 inch” frame can handle full-sized miniquad guts, houses your standard HS1177 camera, and shields everything but the battery with two 4mm thick 6061 aluminum ribs.
As with any Armattan release, some of the best features of this frame are the lack of restrictions you have when building. For example: like usual, the Japalura supports a 30.5mm center stack up to 28mm high. Unlike many available frames, however, a set of 20mm FC mounting holes are available for the gram-shavers among us. In addition, the adjustable angle on the aluminum VTX mount supports a variety of transmitter options. Another feature is the option to mount the battery on the top or the bottom of this machine, just in case you have a strong preference. Lastly, if built with an eye on the weight of all the components, you ought to be able to skate by underneath the United State’s FAA Registration restriction of 250g.
Available in either silver or purple, this frame looks smashing when paired with Oomph 1407 motors.
AND THAT CRUCIAL ARMATTAN WARRANTY?
The Japalura has been constructed to Armattan standards, and we believe the frame is tough enough to warrant a top-to-bottom warranty. (HAH, see what we did there?) This baby is covered from the aluminum roll bars down to the smallest of top-plates.
