I've only been into this hobby for 3 months, and I don't really know that much. And I'm planning to customize a Leopold FC750R PD and swap out the pcb with a different one that supports 5 pin switches and pcb mounted stabilizers. Do I need a specific pcb or will this not work with any other pcbs?

But what are you left with after that?  The keycaps and case?  The caps are nice but the case is a 15 dollar case...surely you can just get whatever PCB you really want and maybe pay for a bit more of a premium case...

Yeah you're right. Do you have any recommendations on what pcb and case I should swap with?

There is no replacement PCB made for the Leopold.

I believe there are files available if you want to get your own made.
