I can't decide I'd want more, white or silver. White would be so nice, but the case just looks so nice when the top/bottom are different. White would look so nice contrasting with another case color. At least IMO lol.

I guess first I gotta win >_<

Are there any real life pictures of the black used in the 3rd case. It looks more dark grey than black and just tying to judge the tone. Thanks!

Iím a bit confused. At the top it mentions the color options + aluminum weight, but the bottom states Itís $385 for the case with brass weight, plate and PCB.

The default the brass weight, right? :)

Pretty sure it's a typo. AFAIK there is no brass weight.

He needs to get permission from Percent, doubtful there will be another International run. Your best bet would be Taobao

Any possibility of a run with the pink case and blue weight? That's my favorite combo.

Doubtful, given that we were only allowed 2 colorways, whereas the China GB had 10+.

I am both happy cause my wallet is safe, and sad cause i want one. upside is there seems to be no lack of 65% popping up. I'm sure there will be other interesting ones.

Same - are there any 65s worth looking forward to? I missed out on the m65a and exent does nothing for me.

There WERE also the 910 and the 268. A zeal65 is supposed to be coming before the end of the year, but I think it may be low profile. Ca66 is a bit odd, but I still think it counts and is coming.

There are probably a few more too, but if nothing else, it just shows demand for 65% is growing, and so more people will step in to fill that niche.

Just a few updates:

1. Invoices for the first 14 have been sent, we're sending it by batches so the rest should receive it over the next 12 hours. Invoices are in SGD because we are paying Percent in RMB.

2. Some people have kindly replied and told me that they will drop out. I will reraffle these slots.

Some explanation about invoicing in SGD:

Recently PayPal and Shopify converted our business account from USD to SGD. While it's possible for us to have money in both currencies, PayPal does not allow us to withdraw it in USD, only SGD. For the Kira buy this was unexpected and I paid for production out of my own funds since we would be losing quite a lot of money if we were to do USD (PP) > SGD (bank account) > USD (factory). This time around Percent has kindly allowed for me to pay in RMB, so SGD (PP) to SGD (bank) does not incur any further charges, which allows me to then remit in RMB to Percent as well without any loss, since we only have to take into account 1 currency conversion.

If you've emailed/messaged me i'll be replying it through the day, thanks for your patience.

What are the odds that the Canoe might be run again in the future outside of China? It's been run multiple times on Taobao, so maybe Percent wouldn't mind if it's run again after the current set? I don't want to give up hope of getting myself one at some point.

Just paid mine now (I don't check my email that often q.q), hopefully in time. Some unsolicited advice: if you do future GBs, I'd recommend putting ~20 people on your "waiting list" and making that visible as well as the winners, so that those people are aware to check back in case they do get in later (e.g. Elton does this for Duck GBs).

Canoe has been available twice in China, and only once to the public, it was a pre-stock sales.
The first batch in China was kinda color combo pre-proofing among some friends.
Future batches for China are planned.
As for int'l, there might be another run, depends on how well this one goes, but it will be with another color combo.

Sorry to bring the doom & gloom but my Canoe stopped working today. I didn't have a problem with it until today when it suddenly locked up and kept repeating the last key pressed.

Now, it doesn't light up, no keys work and when plugging into windows I get "The USB device malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it".

I'm asking some people for help but nothing I've tried is working. I'm searching google for some help but, it seems like the board is not getting power or the device drivers just got wiped clean somehow. I've tried plugging it into a mac, PC and various different USB cables.

For reference, my FC660C plugged into the same USB cable and port works perfectly fine.

I'm highly disappointed that this is an issue with such a "high end custom" keyboard.

It sounds like the firmware is fried.
If the MCU were busted windows wouldn't recognize something is plugged in at all.
The firmware tells windows what it is and without it you'll get that message about not recognizing it.

Do you know what firmware and MCU it uses?
You're probably going to need an ISP programmer to reflash the firmware and bootloader.

Makes sense it would be a mega32.  No native USB support.
If you know someone into Arduino programming they should have one.

There are normally headers on the PCB to plug in to.

Check your orders here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17k0Jr8-Ulof6gfSsinOUegQC28D4ON9ZxYCG-n7ANHM/edit#gid=0

Money has been sent to Percent so updates will be given as and when I receive them :)

Mousepad:
Also, some of you have asked for Percent's mousepad. These are the ones available, I will update with the price again but if you're interested lemme know by posting in this thread so that I can gauge interest and see if that's possible.

If Add on kit means a second plate/pcb, then my entry is not correct. I ordered one as well, but through monokai directly (Kerri told me to order it like that and that the two orders are noted as belonging together:)).

About the mouspad: The black/red one is not available, right? Or as the others mentioned teal on Navy Blue would be nice as well.
IĎd still be intrested in a different one, depending a bit on the price.

No worries, updated! Yours was part of the order, so the G sheet should be correct now :)

Can people who didn't make it into the gb scoop one? I want a blue one, that ish is niiice!

Yea that's fine, we might have to ship the mousepad first since it's gonna arrive here waaaaay earlier than the board :P

I'd ask for this to be optional, I'd rather wait for it than go through the troubles of customs twice. For me that currently means taking 2 trains and waiting in line for an hour or two.

BTW what service are you using to send the stuff out? I'd pay extra for DHL Express as they bring it to my door where I can pay the VAT, no customs there.

Edit: nvm

Shipping will be from Singapore via Singpost or UPS depending on locale.

For some reason DHL Express was close to $30 over the other options available, but if it helps you I don't mind since shipping invoices are individual ones anyway. I think I'll keep the option open for those who are in the Canoe buy to have it shipped together.

Post by: beamingrobot on Wed, 06 December 2017, 00:02:26
Hi friends,

Some updates.

1. Combined shipping:

Some Aussie users have contacted me for combined shipping, no worries on that I'll be sending you all confirmation emails once we receive the boards later on before I ship, thanks for the message.

2. Mousepads:

Unfortunately due to the high base and shipping cost (this thing is like 650g) I'm looking to only offer the mousepads for Canoe GB participants. We're looking at $18 SGD before shipping so it should be better to combine it with the boards and shipped together. If you would like to have one even though you're not part of the buy please let me know, since shipping to Europe is a whopping $25 SGD for just the mousepad -.-

Link to form for mousepads, fill it in and I'll get back to you. (https://goo.gl/forms/a0fQc5sMhALIsoli2)

3. Production:

CNC is done, we're going through the anodizing process. As most of you know this is the most difficult and problematic part so we're waiting with our fingers crossed. Percent is very, very meticulous about QC and he's been at the factory checking so we're looking good so far. I would like to ask everyone to temper our expectations about the ship date, we won't get it this year but we are definitely churning things out at a good speed.


Hope everyone have a great week ahead!

I'll have to calculate it again since it adds quite a bit to the final shipping cost, but it'll all be subsumed under one shipping invoice.

I would like to reiterate that production has already been paid, so please refrain from selling your spots and requesting for refunds from me. That's not possible at this moment. PayPal doesn't look kindly on refunds even though we're a business, as it constitutes negligence on our part to them. Not sure why, it just is according to the rep I talked to on the phone.

There have been arrangements for a couple of people who transferred slots on their own, without requiring refunds from me. That works, with both parties emailing me separately to confirm the trade. This is at your own risk as well.

If you would like to sell or transfer, please either do it on your own and inform me, or wait till the shipping invoice is going out, thanks

With regards to the MAO white spot: appreciate you guys settling it on your own. I'm gonna write a bit on why I'm hesitant to transfer spots at this point, will be replying to the email sent.

On PayPal and GBs:

I'm sure by now many of you have heard of PP horror stories and how GB runners should have notified them ahead of time. Let me just say that in my and other GB runner experiences, notifying PP ahead of time, including all info and even using a business account does not guarantee any recourse once the money comes in. Prior to this GB we have been in constant contact with PP through emails and phone calls, given that their SEA headquarters are situated here in Singapore. Despite assurances from them that once a large amount of $ comes in it'll be fine, the amount slated for Canoe was immediately frozen due to a few factors PP highlighted:

1. Product was not immediately fulfilled (Which we informed them prior to the buy that this would happen)
2. Refunds (PayPal viewed cancellation and reinvoices due to a few transfers etc as refunds by unhappy customers, which to PP signalled that we were having trouble fulfilling items)

Since the entirety , or close to the entirety of the Canoe funds were frozen, we decided to go ahead with the best solution at that time. I paid for the entire production out of my Christmas money savings, and at this stage I'm quite happy to say that we're still fine in terms of finances and that the buy was fully funded. I do not have any idea when PP will decide to unfreeze the amount, and thankfully since I'm a nerd who stays at home most of the time my savings have not been drained at this point. Unless I find an OTD Koala I guess.

So, why not refund and reinvoice? Any refund will flag us to PP, further extending the freeze period. I confirmed this with the rep over the phone and while she was sympathetic this is how PP works. I've sold quite a few of my personal boards over the past few months in order to further accumulate buffer in case any unfortunate things happen, which so far is fine  :thumb:

So the moral of the story is this. PayPal is erratic and highly volatile from my perspective. For future buys I will consider Shopify payments (CC/DC) and bank transfers heavily over PP, since Shopify still provides customer protection for goods purchased, and deposits $ regularly without freezing huge sums for no reason.

This is why I'm only processing transfers much later, I hope this helps to explain the logic behind my actions.

Regarding production: Percent is finishing up Skog and then he will return to Canoe. Some units are close to done, and not to worry since kingnestea and I are in close contact with him.

TL:DR: PayPal sucks, get a debit card.

Sorry to bring the doom & gloom but my Canoe stopped working today. I didn't have a problem with it until today when it suddenly locked up and kept repeating the last key pressed.

Now, it doesn't light up, no keys work and when plugging into windows I get "The USB device malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it".

I'm asking some people for help but nothing I've tried is working. I'm searching google for some help but, it seems like the board is not getting power or the device drivers just got wiped clean somehow. I've tried plugging it into a mac, PC and various different USB cables.

For reference, my FC660C plugged into the same USB cable and port works perfectly fine.

I'm highly disappointed that this is an issue with such a "high end custom" keyboard.

have you ever fixed this or find out what happened?

Since the entirety , or close to the entirety of the Canoe funds were frozen, we decided to go ahead with the best solution at that time. I paid for the entire production out of my Christmas money savings, and at this stage I'm quite happy to say that we're still fine in terms of finances and that the buy was fully funded. I do not have any idea when PP will decide to unfreeze the amount, and thankfully since I'm a nerd who stays at home most of the time my savings have not been drained at this point. Unless I find an OTD Koala I guess.

So, why not refund and reinvoice? Any refund will flag us to PP, further extending the freeze period. I confirmed this with the rep over the phone and while she was sympathetic this is how PP works. I've sold quite a few of my personal boards over the past few months in order to further accumulate buffer in case any unfortunate things happen, which so far is fine  :thumb:

So the moral of the story is this. PayPal is erratic and highly volatile from my perspective. For future buys I will consider Shopify payments (CC/DC) and bank transfers heavily over PP, since Shopify still provides customer protection for goods purchased, and deposits $ regularly without freezing huge sums for no reason.

This is why I'm only processing transfers much later, I hope this helps to explain the logic behind my actions.

Regarding production: Percent is finishing up Skog and then he will return to Canoe. Some units are close to done, and not to worry since kingnestea and I are in close contact with him.

TL:DR: PayPal sucks, get a debit card.

You don't know how worried I am about my own GB running into the same issue haha. Really appreciate what you've done though, looking forward to shipment!

Good luck! Try to contact PayPal way ahead of time and remember to have some cash on hand that's not tied in a PP account.

Sorry to bring the doom & gloom but my Canoe stopped working today. I didn't have a problem with it until today when it suddenly locked up and kept repeating the last key pressed.

Now, it doesn't light up, no keys work and when plugging into windows I get "The USB device malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it".

I'm asking some people for help but nothing I've tried is working. I'm searching google for some help but, it seems like the board is not getting power or the device drivers just got wiped clean somehow. I've tried plugging it into a mac, PC and various different USB cables.

For reference, my FC660C plugged into the same USB cable and port works perfectly fine.

I'm highly disappointed that this is an issue with such a "high end custom" keyboard.

have you ever fixed this or find out what happened?

No idea what happened. I just ended up buying another PCB from the guy I originally bought the board from.

I know we haven't gotten any updates on things but I really hope we get better designed PCBs.

I was attempting to fix up a mate's Skog PCBs since long story short, he received one that had a few dead columns and the replacement didn't even get recognised by Windows. Turns out yes, first one had several dead columns and the second one had either a dead MCU or shorts in the power circuit, because a ISP wouldn't talk to it.

Not impressed by that, a keyboard is only a display piece without a working PCB.

You can see in the photos both standard ansi style and tsangan style bottom rows are supported by both the PCB and plate. The backspace does seem to be fixed layout tho.

(https://i.imgur.com/HOjY3Qy.jpg)

Note the gaps on the left/right of the various keys on the bottom row and the extra socket next to the spacebar.

it looks most of the normal options are there, 7u or 6.25, and stepped or normal caps.

We can not update you constantly because Percent is unpredictable.
3 months ago he said the MAO units are ready to ship, then 1 months ago he said the grey boards will go out first.
And 3 weeks ago he said he would ship out the black ones, and eventually we got some MAO units shipped out 2 weeks ago.

What would ppl think if we keep giving faults updates? Beamingrobot will update you once we have something solid.
Please be patient, we are doing our best, and I'm sure Percent is also working hard on it, but he is a guy who works 8-9 hours a day for his day job.
I'm in touch with Percent on almost a daily base. So nothing to worry about.
The last status I have is the MAO units will roll out this weekend, the black boards are packing, and grey parts are awaiting anodization due to a shut-down of the anodize shop lately. PCBs are ready long ago.

Be prepared to wait a year for this board.  I'm at almost a year from Percents Skog group buy with no end in sight.  Although it does look like hes given up on it and moved to fulfilling this one.

Reading and interpreting what kingnestea said, let's go with no. Basically, Percent just kinda does his thing and eventually ships stuff out, so I'm sure when beamingrobot knows for sure he's getting a batch, he'll let us know if he wants to ship it out. No point giving false positives as kingnestea mentioned.

What I have with me now:

10 MAO units, packing them at the moment to have them out this coming week. If you have received an invoice it means yours is ready to go.

What I'm still waiting on:

Add-on kits (PCB + plate), rest of the units.

This also means that if you ordered a PCB + plate with your MAO unit it will have to wait, since I'll ship them out together.

I'll update more once I receive more units, hopefully soon.

Retooled linear cherries with kin films, 52g springs (very light) and ofcourse lubed. "Gold" (as if) coated, clipped and lubed cherry stabs.

What keycaps are you planning on using with such light switches?

GMK 9009 or GMK Honeywell. Depends on color combo. I got other gmk sets which might complement white case. For example GMK Oblivion (gray alphas) which probably will look good on it.

JTK Red Riot can't happen soon enough.
I'm so tired of spending $150+ on a set of GMK keycaps only to leave half of them in the tray because I'm putting them on a 60/65% keyboard.

congrats to those who has received their Canoe.

A quick update, the rest of MAO units are shipped last week to Beamingrobot, he'll process those orders ASAP.

Percent is shipping some black units and most of the add-on kits out this weekend.

MAO orders with add-on kit shall be able to ship by the time this batch arrives.

Grey parts are still not back from anodization yet.

Thanks!

Actually the led in the right top corner cant be mapped as caps lock indicator. I've tried it via bootmapper but it does not offer the ability to pair capslock with that led. This is sad ofcourse becuase such feature would be really that cherry on top of icecream.
Anyway the led is off on my board because i do like just solid look without any lights.

That stinks.  I actually forgot that it was running bootmapper.  I was thinking it was a custom ps2avr like the SKOG.  I believe that one has the ability to work with the led above the arrow cluster.

So what options are there for the led cutout on the Canoe?  Is it just the color of the RGB underglow settings? In-switch backlight settings?  I could live with that.  But yeah, Caps indicator would have been much nicer.

EDIT --
Okay, I see that it is 2 RGB leds that are configurable in bootmapper and function as a power indicator.

Just doing a dry fit to see how switches feel and caps look.  Damn, these plate cutouts are a really tight fit. This isnít going to be an easy build.  Iíll have to triple check that everything is pushed in before soldering. 

I have guests tonight so I wonít get to build until tomorrow.  Iíll upload pics later.

I did get a card that said ďsorry for the delayĒ.  So, thatís nice 🙂

Yep I saw that, sorry for the unclear post: With extras I meant additional PCB and plate I got with a MAO canoe in the GB. According to the last post of beaming, they would arrive later than the MAOs and thus the orders with additional extras will be delayed as well.

So here's what we have coming in about a week-ish.

Some units of black + gold, some units of black + grey, some of the add-on kits (PCB + plate) Hopefully this means that I can finish up the MAO and black ones within the next few weeks.

For those who transferred spots, I've updated it on the public sheet. I'm waiting on some of your addresses/emails etc, so let me know once you get to it :)

Just in case you can't find the order check link:

Bumping again because I'd also like to know. The main idea is "we are waiting for anodizing" but the international buy has the spreadsheet of confirmation of the status of their order; whilst those of us in the private GB are just fingers crossed. Especially considering the initial timeline was supposed to be like 30 days. Its now been 7 months and Paypal protections are out the window.

I don't have access to that, will wait for nestea's reply.

Shipping invoices are going out for the final 2 MAO units (whew) and a few black/gold + black/silver ones. Some of you who ordered the black/silver and did not swap to the black/gold will have to wait for the next shipment.
I've gone down the list as it is when assigning the shipping invoices for those who ordered black/silver.

I'm looking to ship this whole lot (15 boards) on Mon (7 May). Please endeavour to pay your Shopify invoices before that, thanks!

Shipping invoice received and paid.  I notice that the shipping invoice said "Black Gold", even though I ordered black/grey and did *not* opt to switch to black/gold.  I'm still listed correctly as just "Black" in the spreadsheet.

Some of you might have received invoices with "black/gold" in the details, apologies it was a brain fart/copy paste gone too far... The Google doc is the one I'll refer to when I ship.

quick update,

all base kits with silver top case are on the way to Beamingrobot.
However, he might be lacking some add-on kits to ship 10-ish orders.
Which means, if you've ordered a base kit with add-on kit, you may have to wait a little bit longer.
The other orders should be able to ship soon-ish depending on Beamingrobot's agenda.

Cheers

Ohh, I'm sorry, I misunderstood what you meant by the GB running from your country (Singapore vs China :p). I wish you luck in another GB running internationally, though I personally recommend that you ask a friend who can speak Chinese to work with you to purchase and forward a Chinese GB unit to you, after having to wait 6 months for the international GB one.

I think a 3% ? Dunno, don't have the numbers, but it's not a really steep incline.

Shipping invoices are going out at the moment, all shipments will go out on Mon/Tues.

For those who ordered with an addon kit you'll have to wait, but I'm happy that we're finally getting closer to finishing this GB :D

edit: We're gonna stop at these invoices for now and head to bed, the rest will follow during the weekend :)

Nice, this looks amazing! Good job! What switches did you put in?

Received mine as well a few days ago and had the same reaction: Why is it called mao white? ;)
I havenĎt built mine yet but I still really like it so far despite me not realizing what color the MAO really was going to be! :) Super excited to get this built!

By the way: Thanks beaming for all your work and making this GB happen! Even though there were some delays (which you most certainly couldnĎt control), the GB was really smooth, especially because I felt that you always let us know all the important updates! Plus you were super friendly and helpful!

You're not going to find one that will work b/c of the way the top is extended.  You could use b.mini from Winkeyless, the Sentraq 65% or a Tada68.  Both the tada65 and sentraq have in-switch leds positioned on the top causing issues with cherry profile caps).  You would have to connect the usb inside of the case (not sure if there is room for the connector though) and run it out the back.  This means you would have to disassemble to remove/attach the USB cable in the future.  Also you wouldn't have the top right led, but that's probably not a big deal.

Curious why you are asking.  Are you having trouble with your PCB or just looking to pick one up?  I ask b/c my canoe PCB was pretty much DOA but I managed to fix it by reflowing the MCU pins.

No, no problem as yet, just anticipating options once I have it in hand. As I took over someone's spot I didn't get a chance to order a spare pcb/plate.

There are a few switches I would like to try, namely the new royals from Noveltykeyz, or a lighter zealios variant, and I suspect I will butcher the pcb in the desoldering process. Thanks for the lead on the Sentraq and Tada

It's called MAO white because the target colour really is white lol.
Also, as you said, kudos to beamingrobot for the hard work, all we had to do was wait, while robot had to wait and deal with **** from us as well as percent. Thanks again, mate.

None readily available, might get one commissioned if the new pcb also ends up hot trash.

Are you using screw-in stab (like zeal one)? I had similar issues on EXENT and M65A PCBs with screw-in stabilizers. If you do, try to get the screw off, see if it fix, if yes insulate your PCB with some tap for example before putting back the screw. Globally this looks like a short somewhere

Unfortunate to say, my Canoe arrived with a dead PCB. Bootmapper won't talk to it, and the left 3 columns do not work. I will try to use an ISP to reflash it, but I don't have much hope.

The board also arrived with only 2 screws in the weight, partially screwed in. The other screws just bounced around inside. Some scoff marks on the top shell as well. Looks like my animosity wasn't unwarranted.

Fortunately my Canoe did arrive in working order, however I did have that screw issue. One screw was just strolling around in the case and the others were almost falling out as well.

Mine arrived with 1/2 of the keys not working.  I put a lot of flux on the MCU pins and touched a chisel tip soldering iron to them (I usually keep my Hakko around 650).  Fixed everything.

Had almost the exact same problem and reflowing worked for me.  I put a lot of flux on the pins and then stuck a chisel tip iron to it.  I put the tip almost straight down, spanning 2-4 pins at a time.

Same here, had 2 columns dead and reflowing the microcontroller fixed it. I will say that some of the pins were lifted and not seated flush with the traces. So even though you reflowed it, there could be a chance that it still isn't making contact to the trace.

GH PMs are down so if you've messaged me I apologize if there's no reply.

Nestea and I are trying to get extra PCBs directly, probably without plates. This is separate from those who ordered the addon kit, and if we do manage to get it I'll pay for the lot first and then let everyone know when I receive it so that you'll get a chance to buy it. Priority goes to those in the buy of course.

Received my silver canoe today! Just finish building it with some 67g zealios and some dasher sa that were waiting :D (actually typing on it now!)

I had to reflow the chip to fix a column that was not triggering (0pl....), it solved the problem.

I will post some pics of the build later on.

Only issue: bad anodisation of the gray bottom... there is one clear "line" which is lighter in color, super visible, I don't know how it pass qc.. If it was in the interior it could have been ok (yeah the interior is perfect on mine!), it is still the back, so not visible all day, but STILL (for the amount of money we pay for these keebs!)

1. Percent states it will be the last round of Canoe GB
2. The GB happens in 2018.6.1 20:00 Beijing Time
3. 140 limited with 6 color combo
4. The price in Taobao is only for deposit, you need to transfer the remaining money to Percent by Alipay.

Sure, if you can:

1. Order from Taobao at 2018.6.1 20:00 Beijing Time, its a FCFS from a popular maker so that goes how it usually does
2. Pay the seller the balance of 2000rmb within 5mins and join the QQ group (converse in Chinese if necessary)
3. Forward the order from China to the EU

It ain't impossible, but it's a challenge.

To be fair, the Chinese GB brings a whole new set of colours, as well as a WKL option. I can't say I'm not interested, even though I have a Canoe from this round.

I will be bringing in Canoes from the Chinese GB with new colours, will have varying amounts of units as usual.

Please note that if you buy from the TB GB you will need to converse in Chinese or have someone to help you ship/proxy, also please don't approach me regarding anything from that buy since I won't be involved and can't help as well, but if you're already in China you know what to do :)

I will be selling the units as FCFS, retail on my store once I get them to get around PP funds being frozen, using the funds that have been slowly released. Please refrain from reserving a slot before that since it won't be fair for anyone I think.

Hope this helps, R2 retail will be done with help from kingnestea as well :)

For R1 PMs, I will get back to you on those in these two days.

How about the google form? Also the website seems a bit broken it's really hard to read.
Are the board already made? Or they're going to be produced?

Alright everyone's gotta chill. R2 is still in production so we've gotta wait for that to complete, and then it'll be sent to me and only then I can put it up. Gform will come in the next few weeks, and once you're on the mailing list I'll give ample heads up and time before it goes up for sale.

Unlikely, that it is the firmware, here is a link to the keymap for BootmapperClient though: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0qedoydfs4taj0r/canoe_keymap.hex?dl=0

You really should have tested your PCB first, but you can try and save it if you're confident by reflowing the corresponding pin on the MCU (or all of them lol)

would you know how i can identify the pin that I should reflow on the MCU? the contact points on this thing are extremely tiny.

Follow the trace that connects the dead row all way. If the trace reaches a hole, that means the trace continues on the other side, flip the PCB around and continue following until you eventually reach a pin on the MCU. If you have a multimeter, you can just test continuity between a switch hole and the pins on the MCU until you find the right one.

Yes, the contacts on the MCU are tiny, so it's advised you use a chisel tip to reflow optimally without causing bridges. If you aren't confident, you'll have to wait for beamingrobot to get extras in, and hopefully organise something with him.

I wish you the best of luck, and please test all PCBs you plan to use before doing so, it really does save you a lot of pain.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions! Last question. What I should try to do is touch the contact points with the soldering iron tip, and give time for the solder to reform?

Basically, yes. Tin the tip of your iron, then just melt the solder until it looks liquidy, then take off the iron and let it cool.

To put it simply, the protocol that the PCB uses to talk to the OS is a funny one, and it tends to hate the following:
 - Crap cables
 - USB hubs
 - USB 3.0/3.1

So the solution is to connect directly to the motherboard, preferably on a USB 2.0 port, though I'm sure 1 or 2 ports on your system will work. An unfortunate limitation of V-USB, which is necessary for the MCU (ATMega 32A), which is necessary for ps2avrGB.

So feel free to hate all 3 of those issues LOL

Half-half, more reliable in a way, but still not as good as a board not needing V-USB (aka a board that natively uses QMK or TMK).

EDIT: Just to add, feel free to try both. Just make sure to download and save the keymap using BootmapperClient first, that's a bit difficult to recover.

Hmm ok, that's kinda dumb. So either I place an extra usb extension cable only for the canoe and put it in a 2.0 port, or what I did now and that's using a 2.0 port for my 3.0 usb hub :P Kinda counterintuitive but it's worth a try :)

Sometimes my Canoe won't connect to the pc, even moreso depening on what cable I use. Currently plugged in to a 3.0 anker usb hub that's directly connected to my MB. Plug it out and in and it works again. Anyone else that may have had this problem and/or knows a solution? I only have this with the Canoe, all other keebs work fine.

To put it simply, the protocol that the PCB uses to talk to the OS is a funny one, and it tends to hate the following:
 - Crap cables
 - USB hubs
 - USB 3.0/3.1

So the solution is to connect directly to the motherboard, preferably on a USB 2.0 port, though I'm sure 1 or 2 ports on your system will work. An unfortunate limitation of V-USB, which is necessary for the MCU (ATMega 32A), which is necessary for ps2avrGB.

So feel free to hate all 3 of those issues LOL

Hmm ok, that's kinda dumb. So either I place an extra usb extension cable only for the canoe and put it in a 2.0 port, or what I did now and that's using a 2.0 port for my 3.0 usb hub :P Kinda counterintuitive but it's worth a try :)

A small amendment, things it hates in order: USB Hub > Crappy cable > USB 3.0 . Feel free to just try variations with this mind, I wish you the best of luck,

Haha, thx :) For now I've tried connection hub to 2.0 port. If that doesn't help I'll just add another cable only for keyboards and plug that into a 2.0 port on the MB and only use the hub for wireless mouse recievers and usb sticks.

Thx for the quick reply though :)

For what it's worth, I've had issues with ps2avrGB boards in the past on Macs plugged in through hubs. I ended up just plugging them in directly. At some point that cleared itself up (newer firmware?). I haven't had a ps2avrGB board in a while though until the Canoe and I haven't had issues with in any case (and it's been swapped over to QMK already).

After another attempt at reflowing, with a tad of added solder, I got my PCB working  :thumb: Looks like most of the problems lie with the soldering of the MCU itself.

And a shout-out to Shados for being a lad and providing me with a ISP dump of the flash and EEPROM, will help anyone who managed to brick their boards. He's let me make it publicly available, so here it is for anyone who ends up bricking their PCBs: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pj1mfvjw9lpp30w/canoe_stock_dumps.tar.gz?dl=0

An observation some may find useful; I've noticed that sometimes the "fancy" USB cables (Mechcables, ZapCables, etc) have problems being detected by bootmapper. Every time I run into this issue, swapping out the cable for the most basic USB 2.0 -> Mini-USB has fixed it (think AmazonBasics-level basic).

Another BMC troubleshooting method I learned back when I had my KBD75 (assuming you're on Windows 10) was to go to Settings -> Devices -> Bluetooth & other devices, select ps2avrgb, and remove device. Unplug and replug the board, and wait for Windows to set everything up again.

Built mine today with ISO-US layout, retooled MX blacks with 52g springs, as is tradition

Exactly on all three photos its the same canoe. The first photo is darker but i choosed it because it was more pleasing to the eye than other close up photos i made.

Silver Top, Gray Bottom, Cyan Plate, Cyan Weight?

Sorry i did not answered the second question. My bad. Yes silver top, titan gray bottom, dark cyan plate, cyan weight. Tho hyperfuse is actually more mint than cyan but netherless in my opinion this is the best combo i could pull off.

The chip is surface mount soldered, so there is solder below the pins; however, it is not making a proper connection on one or more or them.  You need to reheat that solder and help it to flow to the pins that are on top of it.  Put some flux on the pins and then touch the tip of the soldering iron to the pins. The flux makes it so that the heat will better travel all around and under the pins. It doesn't matter how much flux you use, you can clean it up with isopropyl afterwards. Don't use any solder or you will most likely bridge the connections.  I just put my solder tip across 3-4 pins at a time.  I hold the chip down with my spare hand until the solder on the pins re-solidifies.  It gets hot quickly, so take some time between pin groups.

seems like these have had quality issues across the board (if you have a grey one check for streaking in the ano) so i haven't gotten around to tracking the issues fully

no streaking, ano seems pretty good, would anyone try making replacement or aftermarket PCBs for these boards? Surely there would be a (small) market for them?

Creating a PCB with the same functionality is probably not that hard. Thing is, one would need an original to take measurements from. I could probably do it, but I don't have a lot of time on my hands these days.

I hate to be that guy, but do you really want more of the same dead and dying pcb's?

I have no idea what happened with this batch(or did anything really happen? I count less than 5 ppl here with issue that couldn't be fixed simply with a reflow. Else than this, all I can see here is bullsh*t), but I have 4 built Canoe PCBs here( 2 of them are over a year old now), none of them have any issue.
Neither any of my friends have issue with the PCB, and tbh, Canoe/Skog sold a lot more in China, and I have never heard of any general issue with the PCB.
But we have asked the PCB guy to check every single PCB with the next batch before he ships.

For the record, 2 guys in China reported issues with their Canoe PCB and got replaced while Canoe has sold more than 150 kits in China now.
And Percent never sold any indiviual PCBs because he's not the PCB maker, he orders the exact amount he needs for GBs, he lacks sometimes PCBs when there is any with issue.
This is the reason why the add-on kits from R1 is not shipping yet. PCBs will come with the R2 batch.

The only Canoe PCBs sales was through me because I have direct contact with the PCB maker, and that sales was to Oblotzky and some friends in EU, all PCBs are tested with no issue by Oblotzky.

If I had to take a guess, the PCBs might be just dying in international shipping, with temperature changes.

While a reflow may seem simple enough to you or me kingnestea, please do understand that not everyone who purchased from this group buy is capable of resolving this issue.

I appreciate the update, but you do need to understand that this issue is less than trivial to us, even if it just works for in China.

Nope, the pcbs are packaged as well as can be expected. I'm not 100% sure, but I feel like it's to do with the type and amount of solder used for assembly. I guess the ENIG finish on the pads may also be a factor.

Thank you, the fact that these PCBs have to be reflowed is a flaw in it's own. A "simple fix" should not have to be required when purchasing a high dollar product.

Hey all, some small updates.

Firstly to all who are waiting on the addon kits, my apologies for the long wait. We've been bugging Percent constantly (esp kingnestea) and the plate + pcbs should be on their way to the shipping company soonish. That's about as much as we know for now.

I've ordered 20 extra PCBs with the help of kingnestea which are not part of the main buy. I've paid for those and have received a tracking number, ETA should be next week if everything goes well. I will give some details on how these PCBs will be sold later on, but please bear in mind I will only prioritize: those who are waiting on their addon kits and those who are in the buy.

As for Round 2, there will be news when I receive it. The entire set of R2 has been paid for, and I'll update on when it goes on sale etc once I receive it. That will be FCFS, announcement will be done via this thread and no place else.

Something is a little weird with my new Canoe. BootMapperClient won't allow me to use SHIFT + ESC to call the ~ key.

On my old canoe, tilde works fine. On the new canoe, it doesn't. I even copied the HEX from the old canoe and flashed it to the new one.

Still no dice. Nothing wrong with the board or the pcb at all. FN + SHIFT + ESC works fine to call tilde, but my old canoe can do it with SHIFT + ESC and I'd like to duplicate the behavior.

Any tips?

I'm also in the market for another PCB and Plate, not because anything is wrong but because I'd like to do the bandaid mod on my old canoe.

OK, so I think I just bricked my Canoe PCB... I'm really hoping someone can give me a suggestion of how to troubleshoot since I'm totally stumped.

 I recently bought a Canoe on r/mechmarket and it worked beautifully for about 2 hours. Then I started playing around with the function layer key to see what buttons adjusted the backlighting, top LED, etc. I managed to turn on the key backlighting and shortly thereafter the PCB started acting very strange. The keys would stop registering after a few seconds of the keyboard being plugged in, and then the keyboard went completely dead. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence in timing with me using the function layer but I have no idea what to do at this point. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot?

I have noticed that the canoe pcb is pretty picky when it comes to usb cables and/or usb hubs. Have you tried another cable and if you use a hub connect it directly to the PC/MB?

Hello guys i build my Canoe and it works. But the Weird thing is that it only works with one cable i have. I have 2 Zap cables and only one of them work. I tested the non working cable on other keyboards and they do work fine but with the Canoe it's a no go.

Any ideas why this is happening?

We're still waiting on production, hopefully next month fingers crossed

Not exactly sure what's happening but I've read on previous posts that the Canoe is super picky about what USB cable you use. I personally haven't had that specific experience with my Canoe but I can tell you that certain custom cables I've purchased have not performed well with various keyboards. I've literally thrown them away because they're so undependable.

I am glad it's the cable and not the PCB. ^-^

Hi guys! I'm coming from Reddit and I'm thinking about the Canoe as my first custom. Is the R2 for this GB over? How are peoples overall experience with the keyboard? I read some people had issues with PCBs.

I think the Canoe is one of the better customs out there. The build quality is exceptional, I'm a fan of the 65% layout and they look badass. I'll go so far as to say if I had to give up my entire collection with the exception of 1 keyboard, I would probably opt for holding on to the Canoe. That being said the first PCB I bought died in about a week but luckily I was able to find a replacement PCB that has been going strong for about a month now. My hope is that Percent is improving the reliability of their PCBs but I honestly don't know.

Curious, did you ever try to fix the PCB? What were the symptoms?

No, I never could get the PCB to work. Everything was working fine until I started playing around with the LED settings using the function key and the function layer. Shortly thereafter I would plug it in and the keys would register for about 10 seconds and then it would stop registering anything. After about a day of this, the PCB stopped working completely. None of my computers even recognize it as a keyboard any more.

I see.  Mine was DOA but I reflowed the MCU and it works now.  Yours sounds more like a bricked by firmware issue I guess.

updates on R2? I've seen many R2 on mechmarket already, barely been able to hold off.
