5/18 Update: Vendor finally got back to me, said about 50% of the orders in Black, Silver and Grey will be shipped out today (from their overseas warehouse to ours) which means fulfillment will be a few weeks hopefully. This means that some of you guys will receive your order first, and others later. I understand the possible frustration of seeing some people received their orders earlier than you, but fulfilling the 900+ orders in batches is more helpful, as it mitigates the speed and workload of shipping a giant shipment container of these kits vs dividing between several pallets - the group buy for the Polaris was done this way too. I also understand there may be people writing in to our community support, but please be patient as is there nothing Drop can do on the receiving end until we received the shipment of these kits. Thanks again for your patience!

For how many people ordered and requested. They should be putting fast shipping on it. I'm just hyped. Only thing I have to do is lube,spring swap and film my switches.

Just seen a user that received their order. It's the black one. This gives me hope! Pretty hyped and can't wait to see the keyboard in grey.

I've heard of a lot of complaints to the soldering, I was just curious, is this a vocal minority or is this an issue that everyone deals with?

Glad I skipped ID80.. The v2 looks like a more polished product.

Idobao said that the v2 would only come in pink or white and would cost 200usd and will include smd leds on the pcb.

The upside of a hotswap board: If I do decide I want a new version I can just pull the switches really quick and move them over. No 3 day desoldering-resoldering job.

Anyone know what microcontroller this keyboard uses when trying to flash using qmk toolbox? Also is anyone else having issues with the hotswap sockets coming out without excessive force being used? I've had to solder 3 of them already.

This is a major concern for me. I do not have access to soldering equipment or a safe place to use it (especially during this pandemic; maker spaces closed) so if mine has trouble I will not be able to effect repairs, even though I know how. Is this a big enough issue I need to contact drop about a cancellation?

So I checked my order date. It said the 26th of March. I also ordered mine in grey. Let me know what date and color you ordered yours! I'm excited and always check on everyone's updates. I will post a full detailed review as well. 😁

I got mine a few minutes ago. F5 is missing the hotswap socket. It was rattling around in the case. I’ll just solder it myself. I don’t have a keycap set that fits it perfectly yes so my photos are some rando Monoprice trash and a white pudding cap until my MT3s come in.

it uses pcb mount but not screw in. You can use screw ins if you would like though

Just a heads up on people starting to receive their ID80's, be extra careful installing switches onto the PCB. Though I did not order through Drop, I got my unit directly from IDOBAO. After installing switches on both my own personal board and a friend's board, we both had issues with the hot swap sockets falling off the PCB. The solder joints on the sockets were incredibly poor and I was not using any more force I was using for other boards I own that are hot swap compatible.

This isn't my first hot-swap board. Compare to others, I can tell a solder joint is weak. That's why I accidentally broke if off PCB, luckily no damage on PCB.

did everyone get the "Order status update" email explaining the delays that went out tonight or just those of us unlucky enough not be in the first batch?
