Have there been hardware revisions between the drops? If so, what changed? I'm thinking about buying one on reddit's mechmarket, but I'd like to know if they regulary update or change the hardware between drops.
The PCBs from both drops 1 and 2 are marked as rev. 1.1d. They did change their manufacturing process and USB cables halfway through drop 1 due to durability problems (see the post from hlship just above yours). They also supposedly made minor changes to the case between 1 and 2. I can't tell the difference other than the pinhole that lets you hit the boot-mode button, but I have heard that they made it easier to align the top layer so that the caps don't hit the case (with a little initial fiddling, this hasn't been an issue for me with either version of the case).
The drop currently pending fulfillment is number 3. It was updated to use USB C in place of Micro B 3.0, so that will certainly mean a PCB revision. This was also the first drop to offer Full hand (though that was made available to participants in drop 1 and 2 in a separate drop).
