+1, for a separate group buy for a Bluetooth PCB (That can still be used via USB) and Carbon Fiber Plate. Sounds cool, so why not?  :thumb:

The shipping might delay a bit due to the testing of PCBs.

It won't take too long to finish them.

Sorry about this. :(

I'd rather wait two weeks if it meant that all PCBs are tested before shipping  :thumb:

While everyone is hot and heavy on the BT PCB, would anyone be interested in it being redesigned to include the Kailh PCB sockets? I may use BT occasionally but I would definitely enjoy the ease of changing switches and keeping their contacts clean.

I'd surely be interested in a hot swap socket version one

Hi guys, all CA66 cases were done except some needed to be re-anodized.

Now we are doing plating for brass plates. Probably 2 to 3 days and we are all good.

About CAD66, it's still an uncertain option that we haven't decide to open a GB for it or not.

But like tanvir175 said, just get a product that you will use it. :thumb:

Here's a pic and a video for updating. Yock's been too busy to take photos for every stuff.

We are close to finish guys. ;D

I love updates like this! Thanks for posting this and like others have said before me, take your time to test the pcb, we are waiting patiently :)

Why not both? Hot swap bluetooth PCB!


I like the way you think! This would be the ultimate PCB.

Hot swap sockets + SMD RGB LEDs + bluetooth/USB dual functionality would be the dream. No soldering or wires necessary!

There will be some extras after GB concludes. Other than that, no unless someone is selling their spot.

OP will post in this thread once they're for sale. Likely through a Google form.

I assume it will be shipping, wait til people receive their shipments, make sure there aren't any order issues that require replacements, etc, and then selling the extras.

Keep an eye out on r/mechmarket

There's one that sold last week for $400 USD shipped, which is fairly inline with group buy pricing + $80

Is this the second group buy? When can we expect the next round, or interest check? It seems like there are a lot of people interested in this board even with its price.

I think this is actually the "third" round.

I don't know about the 2nd one, but I'm pretty sure the first one was only in the chinese community/region. I think that was the 2nd round, too, but some of them made their way other places, as I think the secret got out.

Yeah, this is round 3, first two were China/Taiwan. they were available to other countries as well if you knew where to find the buy and were able to read the information though.\
According to comments made in the IC this will be the final round, no more after this one...

Packaging right now! Thanks for patience of you guys. :p

I believe that I solve all orders that wanted to make address change, but please check again for me if the address in your invoice is right.

PM or email me quickly if you have any require.

About extra, we will release information once everyone gets your CA66.

The result may surprise you guys. ;D
