when you say everything comes pre-soldered, does that include RGB LEDS?

4,PCB is our LDN series with 16.77M color RGB,fully-programmable,TYPE-C port,pre-soldered everything. Just need put stabs and solder the switches.
Please don't ask for QMK,we have our own developed LDN PCB. We don't Use QMK. Thank you

Whats the weight of the board with everything installed?

Also would you be able to order the plate as poly carbonate instead of the brass?

The weight include Case,weight,badge,brass plate,Tangerines switches(84) is 1175.9 Gram.

There will be a R2 of their PCB including the 60% version, though we haven't gotten any updates about either happening just yet, only that they'll be working with TKC and a few other proxies. I'd imagine we'll get more information on them soon though!  :thumb:

Update for Zer0.9EE/Polycarbonate
I am sad to tell everyone this bad news, my CNC factory have escape with my money and they haven’t deliver anything.They are not answer our calls,email,instant message and we have go to their place and find out it’s all empty. So today we can be sure that my CNC guy have run off. I am really sorry about this and we couldn’t let you guys be response for all of this,so here is how we want to deal with this situation.
1, We are making the case with another CNC shop with same quality. We will re-new the leadtime. That means another 3 month for now and we will deliver this keyboard. All other stuff(PCBs,packing,etc)is already in our warehouse now and this project is too good to be wasted so we still want to make it happen. For compensation,we will give everyone a set of stabs(random color) and our newly made tangerines switches(90PCS).
2, We understand some people are not willing to take the risk again. We will give full refund to you and a set of stabs(random color, free shipping)for compensation.
Refund please email to erduo.ear@gmail.com with a form like this:
Invoice number:
GH ID:
We will give refund next Friday.
3, This thing affect both Zer0.9EE(alu) and Zer0.9 polycarbonate.
4, Since we are re-making all of this, we will take new orders if anyone still trusting us.I doubt there is but we will rebuilt the trust.
In the end, i just want to say that we value our brand so much and we will take all the responsibility for this kind of thing. We are prepared to refund everyone.
Sorry again for this,I promise we will learn from this and be more responsible in the future.

Shouldn't focusing on fulfilling the original GB orders that were supposed to ship today take precedence over taking new orders? Why would you throw more orders on top of this mess?

How do you figure that it isn't? More orders will help them recoup some of the loss they're about to take from giving out refunds and spending double to fulfill the non-refunded orders.

Just as a disclaimer, I am in this gb and planning to stay just purely based on C3 being a known person in the community and having delivered many projects. So personally, regardless of which approach he picks, I believe he will deliver the product eventually. That said I agree with wholypantalones here. Say that this gb had 200 boards and now he sells 200 more, and during production something goes south again, is he going to sell a new batch to fix that 400? It is proven time and time that approach usually doesn't work.

Not to mention that more orders means longer fulfillment time and less involved QC.

Honestly, as someone who participated in this gb and was expecting a short lead time only to find out that there is no product after three months, none of this makes me confident to continue any further.

I too was a part of this GB and being my first with the community, I don't have a lot of faith a future product will be managed well with the next manufacturer.

Aren't key milestones set from the outset of the project being worked on with the manu, PRIOR to any money changing hands?

I feel for c3's current situation, but at the end of the day, the community has entrusted him with their hard earned money, to only be left in the dark for 3 months with nothing to show for it.

welp i'm ready, but NO QMK = NO LUBE


this one is gonna hurt bois
Sadly, its pretty standard for Chinese manu'd pcb's
Sadly nothing, they designed their own pcbs and have supported them well in the past. While qmk is nice and easy it's not the end all be all of anything.

in fairness to c3, being left in the dark is the story for most gbs, there's not a lot of updates going around these days. there's also not a lot he can do if he's being lied to.

also be a little bit thankful, everyone has the ability to get a full refund with compensation. that is not going to be the case with many gbs. if i was trying to run a gb and this happened, you'd all be ****ed.

he's making things right. if you don't have confidence then take your refund and find another gb  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
