Order if ONLY you can pay the invoice within a few days and don't have to use that money in the next 3-4 weeks.

Thank you for this sentence.

Actually, I'm going to change it to US orders only because I need to know the amount of US orders to know the cost to ship from Korea in bulk.

But for international orders, it doesn't matter.

What stabilizers does it take? I assume cherry PCB mount, but I dont remember if I saw any specifics on kbd4u.

Sorry I have some doubts regarding this group buy:

1. In what batch this gb will be?
- As from what I knew so far, the first batch has almost closed order, the production starts on 17 to 24 Jan for one week. And the deadline u decided for payment/order is 1st of Feb, which I'm curious and confuse to be honest.

2. The maximum orders taken for each batch stated in the official website is only 60, how many slot are still available?

3. Which Korean will be helping to make this gb run?
- As from I knew it only opens for Korean to make order, unless there's a Korean that are willing to help order and ship to US proxy.

Last but not least, the next batch will/may be conducted after 3-4months after the production of the first batch ended.

I'm very interested to the Lightpad, but there's a lot of myths in my mind that stop me for proceeding any order before everything is clear.
As from what we see from sprit's gb, everything getting along seems a bit messy in my opinion. Sorry if this offense sprit, but I really like and salute his effort for making nice stuff for GHers.

Sure sprit GB is a mess, my order and others VN's one never get invoices and replies or any words on what happened...


Anyway, I love this Butterfly pcb, can I just buy the pcb (smd presolder) only ?

Okay, a lot of questions.

The MX version uses Cherry PCB stabilizers.

As for the Viper, when it's ready, I'm not sure who will be doing it. I'll try to get some info about it.

The acrylic inserts won't be available. They aren't even sold in Korea because of quality issues.

Batches? I don't know anything about that but I'm getting these from the maker himself. TrueCustom is the owner of kbd4u, kbdlab, and the creator of Duck and I received instructions on helping him create a GB for geekhack.

Yes, you can order the PCB alone.

Awesome, so how should I fill the order form because I don't see the option to buy the pcb alone ;D

Right, it would be $28 USD and probably $20 EMS shipping to VN.

Shipping rates are estimated through here.

Would it be possible to order a PCB and ALPs plate together?  I know that is probably being picky, but I was born problematic.

That's true. But compare it to a GON kittypad and it is expensive. Of course this one has a fully CNCed case and is programmable, which is cool.

GON's Kitty Pad is $85 for the case, $25 for PCB.  Fully assembled one he sells for around $198.

365 Pad last sold was $400.

So this price is average I'd say..

EMS is really fast. 3-5 days delivery standards.

I updated post #19 with postage and delivery zones.

The kit weighs a bit over 2 kg after packaging.
