Do the indicator leds still work with qmk ?
QMK will allow you to set RGB controls on the board but it you cannot set a static color as you could with other Duck boards. Even with the software O2D it will not allow you to set a static color so it seems as though the option was removed for this board or maybe the version I am using is the not correct.

My silver one arrived, but it looks like I am missing 2 of the shorter screws for the front of the case.  Is there anyway to get replacements?

i was missing a plate screw. ordered these as replacement: https://www.mcmaster.com/94500A262/

still need to build my board. might spin an h87c that fits. also need to do some FR4 plates, the plate mount tabs and spacebar orientation (north now) are different, so my existing jane v1/orion plates won't work. that'll be fixed soon enough :)

Aftermarket PCB's are always welcomed. I'll buy a couple just to sit on probably. If they have ISO-support of course  ;)

The caps lock, scroll lock and num lock work out of box. The layer ones do as well.

Are you sure you didnít reverse the led +/- when you put them in?

Would anyone happen to have a link to the latest version of the 02D keymapper that works with this PCB? Google is finding me versions from 2014 and 2018.

Thanks in advance!

Edit: Actually, the versions for Orion v2 and v3 work just fine.

Hi all, is there anybody making weights for the Orion 2.5? I know about this guy, that makes uncoated brass weights, which will get patina over time.

https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/comments/n7f5y8/bulk_duck_orion25_accessories_internal_external/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

The patina is not a showstopper, in fact I may like it. But I normally like to look at a few options before I pull the trigger.

Any further suggestions?

Even with the software O2D it will not allow you to set a static color so it seems as though the option was removed for this board or maybe the version I am using is the not correct.


For what it's worth, you can force a static color by editing the individual values "RGB Color Preset" in 02D KeyMapper.

I'm using 02D version 1.10.653. To be clear, you have to go to the "RGB Color Preset" screen in the "Tools" menu, as shown in the screenshot I've attached, then edit the color hex for each light. For the life of me I couldn't figure out the on-board keyboard controls.

this may be super late and whatnot, but did anyone notice that the screws to hold the board together are 3m for the top screws, but are 2.5m for the bottom ones? was looking to get some replacement ones, and noticed that it says that they are both 3m, however upon having the board in hand the top ones appear to be bigger than the bottom ones.

any single color 1.8mm LED should work great, i have used them on duck boards in the past

many vendors have them, but you can also score them from electronics stores like mouser, adafruit, etc. i think they are available on amazon too

just remember that they are directional. you can double check which direction to put them in by plugging in the PCB, then touching the legs to the pads to see if it turns on

Any light colors will work as for the type I have used varying types and all have worked so not sure if one is better than the other.
