Might sound stupid for asking, but would durock v2 stabilizers work with this keyboard?

Double-types. Ddouble inputs. This cocmment will be unedited to demonstrrate the issues I'm ccurrently having. It shows up frequently enough and seemingly at random. I've unplugged and reconnecected to either port in the back, but nothing changes. Any ideas on what to do?? I'll check again for a reset button on the PCB.. DDon't see a mention of a firmware update either. Was super excited to gift this boardd to a relative after assembling it, but right now it's not lookinng good. It's too premature to leave a review, so I thought I shouldd come here first forr input.

Update. I narrowed down the problem keys and replaced switches. Original switches are Kailh box pinks. Replaced the bad 11 keys or so with NK Blueberries instead to troubleshoot, and I haven't had an issue yet after testing. Now I just have to figure out why those switches are bad lol. Pins are fine, maybe I messed up something internally lubing? Or the actuation force of 35 is too light? I wonder.

I don’t know if this has been answered before but will I be able to switch out the case? Does this PCB have the standard screw setup?

not going to write a review yet but the stabilizers are absolute garbage, sloppy as hell and if you clip them they just pull out through the housing. everything else about this keyboard is great but the stabs are just dogshit.

Just got mine and can't agree more. I'm also having issues with typos/double-types. Can't complete a sentence without going back to fix mistakes.

Am I the only one that when I try to actually compile and download my config from the Configurator that Drop provides I get an infinite loading screen? I started the download and came back 2 hours later to it still just giving me the loading icon.

Same thing here. It must just be super buggy right now. Hopefully they fix it soon. I need to have my layers where I expect them to be on a 60%.

i couldn't find this linked anywhere, maybe it should be on the setup instructions page? but i found the link to the drop configurator. sorry, this is my first drop kb, i thought i was supposed to be waiting on the qmk configurator to have the carina (since it has the alt and ctrl) https://drop.com/mechanical-keyboards/configurator

follow the instructions here to download mdloader and use it to load the bin file you downloaded onto your keyboard: https://github.com/Massdrop/mdloader and dont feel bad, drop has not mentioned anywhere, even on the configurator page that you need to do this. pretty sad
