while having read the disclaimer, is there a photo of what to roughly expect for the other colors? interested in gray



this seems to be the gray, right? going by the last picture that shows an even brighter one which I assume is then silver in comparison

Nice! Glad to see that Duck is finally using usb-c. Hoping the TC-V3 gets the same treatment, the micro usb port on mine sketches me out a little.

Will it be possible to just purchase the PCB + plate, without the kit?  (for those with existing Duck Orion, that want to move to USB-C)

They are not compatible with each other.

The first picture is the gray.

If you manage to do both within 100 sets. Or should I restrict it to one only?  ;)

I have no idea if other boards will fit/work.  This uses O2D firmware.

Nah, there was one dude in the Viper round that got 2 boards with distant (by time) order numbers.

This community thinks there is a larger bot problem than there is. These are just low supply and high demand items. It's that simple.

Where is it stated that Orion 2.5 has USB-C? I had the impression this post implied that Orion 3 has USB-C.

I did spot that Elton said the PCB / plate is not compatible with older Orions, but Iím not sure why.

I don't see anything that specifically says usb-c. I'm assuming it's usb-c from this insta post.



Elton, can we get a confirmation that the pcb is in fact usb-c or not?

Is this a new material for Duck keyboards? Are there any sound tests? I looked around and wasn't able to find any.

Very interested, I was going for aluminum but may just go with plastic.

it will work with h87c since this new one is type C unless duck changed any of the PCB spacing which it looks like he did not

the old miniusb pcbs work w orion 2

Darn, filled it out once and after hitting submit had to do the "I'm not a robot thing" and then it reloaded the form with nothing in there.

Hope I was quick enough on the second try.
