Re: [GB] CA66 Custom Keyboard Kit Round 2 (GB starts!)
« Reply #150 on: Thu, 30 August 2018, 10:23:20 »
Just for clarification purposes as I'm on the fence on buying either another CA66 or just an extra pcb:

The default pcb now supports programmable RGB LEDs, correct? The previous pcb wasn't programmable, just a light strip, if I remember it correctly.

How is the USB-C connector on YANG's BT pcb? I understand it's not on a daughter board so how is the fit when not using BT and using the USB-C connector instead.

Reeeally interested in that white CA66, even though I already have the luxurious dark red since last round. :cool:

It's still RGB LED strip, following animations that TMK and QMK provide.
BT PCB still has a daughter board, same as the default one. ;)

I'm looking for people's opinions:

I'm unsure whether to buy the black or white case.

If money was no object I would buy the black case and buy SA troubled minds r2, but that's probably a bit much..

I have SA Carbon but I'm missing the modifiers extension so unless I can find it on mechmarket (unlikely) I may not be able to use it..

I'm thinking the easiest option might be to buy the white case and pick up a set of DSA Honeywell caps.

Has anyone seen photos of DSA profile caps on the CA66?

If they look alright I will get a white case, otherwise I'll get a black one and keep my eyes open for something in SA profile..

The white case is much more unique and would pair nicely with many sets. That gets my vote!

I have a little problem with my RGB strip. After I flashed my hex, I can't change the RGB anymore. It stays stuck on the flashing mode. Any help would be appreciated :)

I bought in a few days ago and want to add a brass plate to the order. Is it possible to bundle this shipping with the rest of the board so i don't have to pay additional post?

I decided on the white in the end, I'm hoping I can either find the missing keys for my SA Carbon set, or sell them and look for a set of Honeywell keys that have the correct size mods. YEEET!

Why not just join now rather than chance it?

It'll be PDT. Won't be too accurate so you might have some extra time to join. :p

When ordering spare parts how would we select colors for aluminum plates (both regular and alps)? There isnt an option to select plate colors. Should we make a note somewhere?

Sorry to say no. :-X

Would this battery: https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32820875729.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32820875729&aff_trace_key=6a61fd7838f946c4bc418407ca8645d1-1495827122980-06676-F233fuf&aff_short_key=F233fuf&aff_platform=msite work and do I need anything else like a connector? If I need a connector what should I look for?

You'll need a connector if you want to plug in/out easily. The size will be 1.25mm, 2 pin.
Or you can just remove the receptacle on PCB and solder wires in holes instead.

When ordering spare parts how would we select colors for aluminum plates (both regular and alps)? There isnt an option to select plate colors. Should we make a note somewhere?

We already realized we missed the color choosing parts for both plates.
It's a bit complicate for setting up the page and we don't think change it during GB period is a good idea.
So we'll send emails to order owners for checking everyone's choice of colors.
Sorry for causing any inconvenience. :(

Thank you for the clarification on the connector! Can you tell me why the battery in the PCB shot in the IC post has 5 pins? What do the other 3 pins do?

Edit: never mind. I just realized I was looking at the connector for the daughter board and thinking it was for the battery. My bad.

Also will the extra parts stop sale on Sep 5 as well?

Very much different. Gold alu plate is sandblasted, and brass will be mirror-like.

I could not resist. Ordered one CA66 in Grey with Titanium Badge and BT PCB....

With these sets do you think I am right?
My sets:
- SA Oblivion
- SA Calm Depths (whenever it appears on sight)
- SA 1965
- SA Pulse
- SA Jukebox
- SA Modern Selectric Black
- SA Hyperfuse
- SA Cabon
- SA Solarized Dark

White is heavy on me also... very nice also.
Similar I have a Black Exent, and Norbaforce is Grey also... I know I tend to grey colours in my keyboards... but I saw Oblivion in a Grey one with Ti badge and WOW!

Also, why buying anymore PCB or plates? From my other builds those tend to be left in boxes with nothing to say... may be I miss something?

Yes, the light was a bit too much.
Grey blue is a very hard one to shoot it right imo. :))

Some people buy them for spare parts. You can have two kinds of builds by swapping them easily. :))

Grey or white would work with most of those sets but I think grey would win out. Jukebox would benefit most from white but most of the rest would either look better with grey or equally as good.

I didn't have a chance for shooting photos to compare them myself. Most cases were shipped directly from China. ^-^
Black is just a bit darker then dark grey, for satisfying some guys' desires.

Thanks for answering. I am torn between both but, as always, grey is winner. In this case even more for the speciality of the case itself.

The only notable kit I have coming is the GMK Space Cadet, but I wasn't planning on putting that on the CA66. I really like SA Oblivion so I'm looking for something with muted off-white or grey in the same vein. I have been toying around with Miami Nights since last night in my head  :cool:

The only notable kit I have coming is the GMK Space Cadet, but I wasn't planning on putting that on the CA66. I really like SA Oblivion so I'm looking for something with muted off-white or grey in the same vein. I have been toying around with Miami Nights since last night in my head  :cool:

I can totally understand the feeling. :))

Ordered! Had to wait a while because of monies issue, but finally I'm in. Yay!

Thanks! ;D

thinking of getting dark grey, but asking anyway. which color goes with modern dolch? /dev/tty beige/rgb?

edit: is this dark grey?

Theyre just renders but looks like grey to me. Id also recommend grey based on your sets.

Yes these are dark grey. Thanks to Janglad. :thumb:

order in. dark grey/red/BT WKL + brass plate. was a tough decision between hhkb and wkl, but in the end, the extra key won.

Cheers! ;D

The default pcb is compatible with the brass plate from last round, right?

Great! I ordered two. Just in case my soldering messes something up. ;D

Could you give a breakdown of the major differences between this pcb compared to the previous round? I've picked up bits and pieces in the threads here and there, but it'd be really nice to just see a list. :)

The major differences are:
  • USB C to C supports
  • In switch LEDs IC pin out fix
  • RGB LED strip raised a bit for avoiding light leaking
Thanks for joining! :thumb:

Is it possible to underdeclare the value so we don't get taxed at customs? 7% or whatever VAT of the total value is painful T.T
