When @erickong suggested that the Cooler Master Pro M was what I was looking for, I found out that that was called a 90% layout and went Googling and found the Plum 96 Laser Etched POM Mechanical Keyboard. I think that I like that one a lot more. I think the best option is the Red Scarf III Ver.A 96-Key Custom Keyboard Kit with the standard 6.25u with no arrow keys that was apparently already on Massdrop, but I really do not want to have to put it together. I also really think that the remote is just a stupid, wasteful, gimmick.

I think the world would be perfect if I could find a JIS Layout set up identically to the Red Scarf III Ver.A 96 Custom Keyboard Kit with the standard 6.25u with no arrow keys layout. Obiviously, the spacebar would no longer be 6.25u, but I don't really care about the size of the spacebar as much as I care out the positioning of the keys as a whole.

I think the PCB and programming on the red scarf was bad. Check out the Kira96

My issue with the Kira 96 is that they've gone in and forced the arrow keys in there and messed up the position of the right CTRL key in the process. I make liberal use of the CTRL, ALT, and SUPER keys on a keyboard and I like to be able to to employ the use of them with one hand while handling the letters in shortcuts and emacs commands in the other hand. I want everything that is on the "main" portion to stay unf***ed with, except the context menu key which I usually find totally useless.

Mdloader not detecting my DROP CTRL
I already have the DROP ALT so I know exactly how to flash LED configurations to the board, but when I hold FN + B and my keyboard restarts, Mdloader does not detect my keyboard and even attempt to flash the bin file. Anyone know why this is happening?

CTRL ALT Keyboard ISO DE?
Is there any way to use it like that or is any ISO DE version planned? Would love to get into hotswappable mechanical keyboards but can't seem to find any besides the GMMK (which I don't like). Thanks for advice!

Drop CTRL High-Profile "pinging" metal sound when typing?
I recently got the Drop CTRL High-Profile keyboard in the mail, and immediately when i started typing i noticed a loud, metal reverb sound while typing. I have a Drop ALT High-Profile board and I hear absolutely nothing like this from that board. I even took one of my lubed switches from my ALT and one of the keycaps from it as well but I still hear it. Is there a problem with my new board? Or is this just because the CTRL is designed differently? So far im really not a fan, it's the loudest keyboard I've ever typed on. I could take a video for an example if necessary.

New to Drop and Mech Keyboard world - Keysets of 84 keys?
Hi! I just got my second mech keyboard after (a lot of) research and saving up. I don't have the money for high end stuff as of yet - but I'm loving the community and my keyboards already. I have a Motospeed CK108 on Outemus Blues, it was my first keyboard and it's running great for 5 years now with simple maintenance only. And I just acquired Akko's 3084 on Cherry's Browns and blue keycaps set. It costs more than what I intended to spend overall - so bear with me here. I would like to give it a personal touch and get custom keycaps (I know good ones cost a lot - and I'm willing to save up and get a cool set) - but it's hard to find out what keysets would fit. All I know is that my right SHIFT key is unusual and pretty much there aren't any 84 keys set available anywhere (or am I missing something) Is there any other layout that would also fit in my keyboard? Any help is appreciated.
