Have there been any revisions to drop's boards? Are the PCBs still north facing 3-pin PCBs? is it still an integrated plate? does it still only support plate mount stabilizers?
What mounting style does this board use?
For a keyboard that is $499, why doesn't at least have a south facing? This honestly just looks like a more expensive Drop Alt, the only parts that seem high quality are the GMK keycaps and the Holy Pandas. I'd expect a keyboard at this price range to be at least a gasket mount or south facing.
