Welcome to SA Danger Zone and the first keycap set from us in 2019. This particular set holds a very special place in my heart and I’m excited to work with Data again on the second run of these keycaps.
SA Danger Zone was last launched in 2015, when I first started at Massdrop and the keyboard community was far smaller than what it is today. In fact, /r/mechanicalkeyboards had less than 100,000 subscribers when Danger Zone was last active.
Back in 2015, Danger Zone was conceived as an R3 uniform SA set. This was also before Signature Plastics had a chance to update some of the last legacy SA tools like the R3 right shift.
The keyboard community has grown astronomically since 2015. Signature Plastics has also filled out their tools for the SA line. We are taking this opportunity to create a fully sculpted set for the second round of Danger Zone.
The colors, from the navy blue alphas to the yellow and red accent keys, remain the same as the original run and the popular aviation themed text novelties will be making a comeback as well.
We are excited to kick off the year with a classic SA set and want to thank everyone for their support.
One final note before I sign off - there are a few kits that are still being finalized. We will get them added to the drop page as soon as they are complete.
Is the profile all R3 or sculpted?
It says sculpted in the overview/description.
How many sets will become available? Is this going to be like many popular keycap sets where if you aren't here for the first 20minutes they are sold out?
There is no limit, as these are made to order.
Any chance of a mac (OS X) kit?
I suggested that back in the day... "Command" sounds so very... Air Force themed!
Thank you for keeping the kits simple and not splitting up kits with additional key we would never use!
Still missing international. I just hope they will add that, then I am in.
Aw man. This was my first SA set. I've been searching for the original numpad set because I neglected getting it the first time around, and have been using my Dasher numpad mixed with Danger Zone alpha+mods on my full size keyboard. Guess it'll forever be left unfinished.
any estimate on what the ship date would be, I really don't want to wait 6 months for keycaps (already did that for the preonic).
I'd b expect closer to a year-15 months.
Drop went live, ships in July!
Any updates on the Wingman kit?
Holding my breath for the ErgoDox kit
Also waiting for the novelties/wingman kit.
Getting quoted and rendered now! Hoping to have it up for everyone soon.
how thick are the keycaps?
When do you think we can expect them to be up?
Shortest SA drop ever. Is this to make room for Jamon next month? Or just a new thing MD is trying?
will Massdrop get the rest of the kits up before the drop closes? Place your bets!
Please remember some blanks for those of use with odd layouts. Four R3 blanks and two R4 blanks in alpha colors for me please :)
No samples and radio silence for the last month and a ship date a week out .... I was hoping Drop wouldn't expereince the same issues MD has tried to address in the past.
This drop is round 2 so samples are the same as the round 1 drop that Massdrop first ran for the designer a few years ago. I wouldn’t expect any samples because only the profile changed and the number of options are fewer in this round than in the first.
Therefore I wouldn’t expect much updates from the Drop team aside from any delays that go longer than a couple of weeks from the estimated ship date.
Hope that helps.
They're not though. R2 R2 R3 R3 R3 is quite different from a sculpted profile. The only saving grace here is that it's Signature Plastics, so we know the quality will be good. 6 days go to before shipping. Would be nice to see some movement here.
I was just going by what @Data mentioned in this thread
My bad I was replying to a post where I had previously commented, I didn't read the other threads. Sounds like there should be samples and yeah usually there is the old cardboard sample that SP uses to show off the completed kits. Maybe that was the samples Data was referring to. As far as the previous comment about row profiles goes, I highly discount any reason there would be a absolute expectation for a sample simply because the profile was changing, I mean font or color change sure, but profile?
Different doubleshot injection molds are required for different profiles. Like I said, I'm not too worried, this is SP not maxkey.
Hi.. my Wingman kit has this problem. Do you know who can support me about this?
I'll be able to help you out next week.
Thank you!!! Waiting for your help.
Hi - I received my order and the keycaps look great. However, I screwed up and failed to order the "Alphas" set - I have only the modifiers, specialties, and numpad. Is there any way to get the Alphas from you or anyone else who ordered extra somehow? Thanks.
