Still waiting for answers, but the stabilizers probably $10.  You can buy a set if you get one unassembled.  For assembly, it is included in the price.

Not possible to expand anymore orders as that will delay further of their plans (ie viper and eagle)

Assembly form will end when the payment is due..around mid-end of May.

So by custom LED, does that also include customizing the side SMD LED?
Has there been any news on this?

Hey Elton,

Not that it really matters, but out of curiosity, will the orders without assembly services be shipped before those that requested assembly services, or will they all be shipped in the same go?

Thanks!

Is there no possibility that the order limit can be expanded again? I'd really like one of these keyboards, and since the initial orders filled in a day, I'm sure I'm not the only one that still wants one.

There's still Originative.

ewwwwww

Not too inclined to dip my feet in that dirty pool yet. Seems like it's been left unattended for the last month, or 5.

1. The PCBs will be made earlier than the cases, so they will be shipped at the same time.  Hopefully I'll get the assembled part done earlier and send it to them.

2. Ok, there will be 2 kind of plates. I'm still waiting for more info on this....

3. Side LEDs are fixed, sorry...

I completed the form, however why do I have to answer the numpad question 3 times? I wanted 3 B, regular numpad, however I had to pick a numpad option for 1, and 2 as well as it was required?

Each of the options offers different keys. It is neccessary to specify each setup.

A standard numpad would be:

1b (for the 2u "0" key)
2b (for the 2u "+" key)
3b (for the 2u "Enter" key)

Playing around with the layout editor, this should be the look of my keyboard after I receive the granite caps from sp.

If 1.25x,1.25x,1.25x,6.25x,1.5x,1.5x,1x,1x works
61955-0

Alternative option:
61957-1

Ah, see I'm a little tired after the long weekend and getting to work it, I appreciate your help going to PM this to Elton, as apparently I'm an idiot, and my first custom keyboard ever.

Those are the exact two layouts I'm going for as well.  I can't wait!  Finally a full size board without the "full-size".

Same layout I'll probably settle on also. Make sure you boys order the 1800 kit and Tsangans when you buy your keysets now :)

Ronnn, that layout will work, but without the plate.

Also, if you want the new layout 1.5 1.5 7x 1.5 1.5 1x 1x, you'll need the new plate.  For the current layout from V1, you'll have that current plate. 

People, please let me know which plate you want and it will be included with the set.  If you want both, you have to buy the extra plate.  Sorry for the late notice, I just found out last night..

Any chance of being able to get the stabilizers without going the full assembly route?

Also, I'm confused about the plate situation. There are two, one supports having the arrow cluster next to the right shift and is extra?

Yeah I got you down for it.

Also for the grey for both Orion and Lightsaver V2, it'll be the blue grey colour.
http://kbdlab.co.kr/index.php?mid=board_dAHG88&document_srl=200538

The anodizing place only makes this grey. They can use another company but the quality isn't as good.


Yes, you can order one full set of stabilizers for each lightsaver you ordered

For plates, if you want the new layout I posted earlier, you need the new plate. For the others you need the other plate

Stab set comes with 7x, 6.25x, 4x 2u wires and all the stab parts for the wires.  So basically ready for a TKL keyboard.

You have to buy 2 sets though since lightsaver requires the numpad if you want them to have the 2U stabs.

each set is 3.5$

I'm a little confused.  Sounds you said we could order one full set but now you're saying we need two...?

Well that full set they have only comes with enough for a TKL. $7 for 2 sets of stabilizers is the cheapest you will find anyways

It's impossible to change the colour on our Orion orders now right? Kinda sad that the colour magically changes as they have to anodize it in a second batch :/

I think viper is 2 piece housing. If it is one-piece housing, how do they achieve that top cover?

I think this still applies. So I think users will be getting them around mid June.

TrueCustom designed a new PCB for the Lightsaver V2, so it'll take about a month longer to be ready. Around end of May.

So the newer plates lose the standard moogle/tsangan layouts?  If that's the case, how much would the additional plate cost?
I'll be sure to pm you my plate/stab order soon, and thanks again for running these lovely GBs.  :D
