Most likely not. Quant is still in the process of shipping.

anyone know where to get screws for the case? they look like m3x10mm but the head of the m3 screws i have are just slightly too big to fit in the hole. after opening up the case a few times i can't quite get the screws along the top of the case to screw back in, almost like they're just a little too short to catch the thread so i was going to try and use a slightly longer screw

Having the exact same problem. Looked everywhere, couldn't find solution. Screws that are long enough to reach are not thick enough to fill in the threads. Screws that can reach have such a large head that won't fit into the screw hole. I visited three different Ace Hardware shops, as well as a local Fastenals, but no luck so far. Don't know what to do either.

i found some m2.5 and m2.6 screws online that i'm going to buy and try out. failing that i'm thinking i could try grinding down the heads of some nylon m3 screws, but i'm hoping it doesn't get to that point  :confused:

Ordering a few different kinds of m3 screws to see if any will be suitable replacements. Will keep you all updated.

The screws seem to be M3x10 with a PH2 head, so maybe JIS specifications? I also had trouble fitting a normal PH2 bit (or screwdriver) in the holes. Got it to work by extending a PH2 bit with 4 mm hex shank, but proper, longer bits of this form are almost impossible to find.

i was running some errands today and decided to stop by ace hardware to see what they had for screws (only checked home depot before this), and i found some jis m3 screws (forgot what exactly it was called, didn't take a picture since i left my phone in my car) and when i measured the head it looked to be just about 5mm which is what the screw hole diameter on the kyuu looks to be. so i bought four and lo and behold, they work!

looking at the original screw and the new one i got, it looks like the screw diameters are slightly off, but that could just be me. either way, it screws in just fine. here are a few pictures comparing the screws for those interested. https://imgur.com/a/SP1U3N8

Just want to follow up. So I got the screws from catamscott (thanks again!) but they were indeed a bit too long as he already mentioned above. I decided to visit another local hardware shop to find some washers. The smallest one they carried was a little bit too big so you'd have to trim the head down. I've posted some pics. Should be able to fill in the gap between the screw's head and the bottom of the screw hole very nicely. If anyone needs help regarding the screws or washers let me know. I can revisit the store and grab a couple more for you.

I've got no Kyuu, but just gonna drop this here:

https://us.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/221000551231/?PNSearch=CSHSMT-SUS-M3-10&HissuCode=CSHSMT-SUS-M3-10&searchFlow=suggest2products&Keyword=CSHSMT-SUS-M3-10

From what I can see, you're dealing with a standard enough M3 x 10 mm length tapped hole, but the head needs to be a smaller diameter. The above fastener is a small-head hex cap screw, diameter is 4.5 mm. No janky fixes FTW.

Thanks for the  responses  everyone. I'll have to look into getting something made.
Do we have plate files available for it anywhere? I'd love to get a new build in it.
Do you know how to get the PCB into DFU? I can't figure out how to get it into reset.

Thereís 4 pads on the PCB. You have to short 2 of the pads in a diagonal pattern.

Alternatively I believe I got mine to reset by holding space + B when plugging the board back in.
