Hi everyone!

The Lancelot themed kits are designed by Hongoo, partner of Wuque studio. Hongoo has been working on the design for the past few months until we share the designs here. Besides the designs, we would also want to share with you how we come to this IC.

Some considerations:
# We want a decent PBT base that works for as many layouts as possible.
# We hope the price wonít break the bank.
# We donít want to die of waiting.

So, here are what we got

# We upgraded the base from 117 keys to 135 keys. So it even works with Alice layout now.
# Super big Dye-subbed PBT base at almost half price of normal kits
# Delivery schedule of 4-5 months instead of 1 year+

What we have been considering really for a loooong time?
Itís the manufacturer!
Weíve been considering other familiar manufacturers for over months, but finally choose current one. They have been manufacturing keycaps for over ten years and we love their keycaps a lot. We think itís time to show the community some good new choices, just like we always do with previous products we launched.

Million thanks to @SirTimmyTimbit, @Alex, @Fen, who help us to improve!

Finally, feel free to leave your comments here, fillin our IC form or join our  Discord server!

Cheers,
Wuque Studio

Could you add an F13 key?

Price and kitting is not bad at all.

Could we get more information about the manufacturer? I still have concerns about PBT warping and it would be very helpful if we knew one of the past sets that they produced.

yes, we can add F13

I don't believe Matt3o has ever confirmed who manufactures MT3 other than it being Drop directly. Where is this coming from?

From what we see in the manufacturer's place actually :)

Great price! Just found out about this, wondering why the IC is so quiet.

I've some thoughts on kitting here:
Forcing accent space bar in base / kitting alpha spaces out is a very strange decision to me, even if the kit would be cheap.

No numpad is base is unfortunate.

The ISO implementation is a weird middle ground. You're leaning on UK-ISO for for two needed R3/R4 1us and have the extra correct legending for R3 '/@ but disregard the addition keys on the num row to complete UK-ISO. It would be fantastic if you were to add them, but if you do not then I would suggest stripping back the additional correct legending so that you have very basic ISO support.


GLWIC champ.

yeah, the odd part to me really is not that it's accent but that it has a massive spacebar kit in the base rather than one blue one white of each 6.25 and 7u. Usually split spaces/alice/ortho is in a diff kit as they are significantly less popular. I do really like this set though so I'll likely pickup a spacebar kit + base.
