:( caught me off guard

Me as well! Although the GB pricing is banging so I'm really gonna try my hardest to jump on one of these. I've been wanting a Raven to put my SKCM browns in ever since I first saw it on Holtenc's site.

Correct. Exact same kits. Just coming from manufacturer inventory instead of my own.

I was told it would be good to add some more pictures that show more details of the design. I've added them to the OP.

This PCB supports both Alps and MX switches at the same time right? Pretty nice if that's the case

Correct. O2D. At one point mechmerlin was working on porting it to QMK. not sure how much progress has been made.

yes it supports both MX and alps

Not unless you want to use something like millmax sockets.

How many of these were sold in the GB out of curiosity?

Also I would love to get an Alps plate for the Sidewinder in a material other than stainless steel. Aluminum would be nice.

Sorry for the late replies everyone. GH refuses to send me emails when someone replies to my threads

How many of these were sold in the GB out of curiosity?

Also I would love to get an Alps plate for the Sidewinder in a material other than stainless steel. Aluminum would be nice.

14 were sold in the GB. Unfortunately Alps plate is only available in stainless.

And just as this ends I brick my Viper PCB. Top row doesn't work. Any chance I can just buy the sidewinder pcb?

I'm working on getting more PCBs.

Limited Quantities available:
Raven - Silver: 45
Raven - Gray: 10
Sidewinder - Silver: 34
Sidewinder - Gray: 4

Are these all gonna be made and the left over stocked? Or only the 14 sold kits gonna be made?

All of the cases are already made and anodized. The quantities you quoted are what the manufacturer has/had on hand and is in addition to the stock I have listed on my store.

UPDATE: kits WITHOUT Alps plate will be shipped most likely this week. Alps plate will likely ship the following week. I'll email tracking info when I get it.

I need some help. After I've built the board, I can use it as normal, but when I tried reprogramming it.. I used both 02D and QMK to flash the firmware.. but can't get to work. No lights. No response. Nothing at all.

EDIT: Finally found a way. Instead of selecting Viper/Eagle v.2, you have to select v.1

Good deal. I was about to advise that. Anyone else that runs in to this see the bottom of the product page on my site here:
