Do not submit another order form!Timeline
The group buy will remain open until April 5, 2017 after which orders will be sent out to the supplier.
I will send out invoices after April 5 if we have a MOQ of at least 50.
From there, its up to however long AMJ takes to make the boards and ship everything out. He did mention that people should not buy if they are in a rush to get it.
Shipping from China usually takes anywhere from 1-2 months.
After that I will promptly ship everything out to you guys within a few days.
Check Discord for updates.Note
Please be aware that there is the possibility of US Customs adding tax when the keyboards arrive to the US, as this is an international group buy with the boards coming from China. If there are taxes at Customs, I will send another invoice with the appropriate taxes based on the price of your order in relation to the total value of the shipment and the rate at which Customs taxed at.
There are many different combinations to choose from, so please carefully take a look at what is available below.
You will need to specify whether you want staggered or ortholinear layout, because it will affect which kind of plate you get.Available in the group buy:
Main Kit $90 per kit

I am also offering the option of having the keyboard coming pre-assembled. In order to get this done, you will also need to order all of the necessary additional parts - at the very least the switches, appropriate stabilizers, and also LEDs if you wish to have backlighting. You will also need to specify which of the 5 layouts you wish to have. Please look at the picture below for the layouts **Pre-assembly will cost $20 USD.**Layouts and Colors:
Since the majority of people have expressed interest in the aluminum case, I have decided to go with only offering the aluminum case. Currently that is the only kind that AMJ has.
Aluminum cases come in 9 colors: Silver, Gold, Titanium Grey, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Black, Light Pink, and Purple.
You will have the option of choosing case color in the order form.
I currently do not have pictures of all the aluminum case colors, but I will try to see if the supplier can send me some.
Here are the confirmed colors:
Light Blue: Pic
The aluminum colors appear to be standardized, so the following should be what the other colors look like, although I am still awaiting confirmation.
Dark Blue: Pic
Light Pink: Pic
LEDs are available in the 12 following colors: White, Ice Blue, Orange, Violet, Purple, Emerald, Green, Pink, Yellow, Fluorescent Yellow, Blue, Red
You can see what the LEDs colors will look like: HERE
6 Layout Options:
See the 6 possible layouts: HERE
Layouts 1 and 3 need two 2u stabilizers for the spacebars.
Layouts 2 and 4 need a 6.25u stabilizer for the spacebar.
Layout 5 needs a 6u stabilizer for the spacebar.
Layout 6 needs one 2u stabilizer for the spacebar.Shipping
There will be a shipping fee to get the kits shipped in bulk from China to the US. However this cost should only be a few dollars per person.
For shipping to final destination:
Within the US ~$15 USD
To Canada ~$20 USD
International Shipping ~$35 USD
Prices may vary slightly from shown above at the time of invoicing. If many people order, I may be able to lower the price of shipping as I can buy packaging materials in bulk. Overall, shipping will be somewhat pricier due to the fact that there are aluminum cases that take up space and weight. The orders will need to be shipped in boxes. Gotta protect those boards!Flashing:
The keyboard can be flashed with the tools that AMJ has provided: HERE
Do not use the included firmware files that are provided with the flashing tool, as they are for the v1 board which has a different bottom row layout.
I will do a writeup of how to use the flashing tools soon, but you can also watch this video to learn how to use it:
The TMK firmware with support for the v2 boards can be found here: Github
You can also use my QMK port here: Github
