I'm writing this post to gauge how others would feel if the current CTRL/ALT PCB's where updated to support 5-pin switches and potentially even holes for PCB mount stabilisers. I understand that if both 5-pin switch capabilities and PCB mount stabilisers where made available for the PCB there would need to be slight modifications made to the case of the particular keyboard, i will elaborate on my thoughts on this topic below. I have also heard issues with north facing LED's and getting some sort of interference when it comes to using certain switches with Cherry profile keycaps such as GMK, if anyone has encounter this please share in the comments below as i have personally not faced this issue on my CTRL.
I would love to see a new PCB be offered on the drop store for the CTRL and ALT that can be bought separately that supports both 5-pin switches and PCB-mount stabilisers. Extra cases and switches are offered as a stand alone product on the Drop Store and i feel like...
DROP View - Monitor That Matches Fit and Finish of DROP Mech Boards?
TLDR: DROP should make a high res monitor that matches the ALT/CTRL/SHIFT boards in design language + fit and finish. Just drop a good pre-existing panel in an aluminum enclosure with that signature LED acrylic strip and a controller board that doesn't lock you into the Apple ecosystem to control more than 4k. If LG can get $1500 for a crappy plastic monitor, and Apple wants $6k for 6k, there has to be some in between market.
More wishful thinking:
Has anyone else out there been looking for external monitors for WFH and realized that there are essentially three camps, and that you don't fall into any of them?
Camp 1: Crap you'd find in Office Depot. They probably don't list their resolution because their customer base probably doesn't know or care what that means unless they saw it in operation. Cheap, but not as cheap as they should be.
Camp 2: Gamer monitors. Seemingly prioritizing nothing but refresh rate with a resolution that is almost certainly at or below 1440p. Almost...
I have designed and printed a set of keycap which based on my layout and compatible with some popular layout on Ergodox EZ website. Some print is not on perfect position on this sample.
I may consider to start a group buy. Please leave your comments.

Do HyperX pudding keycaps work on gateron switches?
I was looking into getting some HyperX Pudding keycaps but i was unsure if they would work on Gateron Silent switches, they say any CherryMX switches but some people were saying it worked on any CherryMX compatible switches, so will silent gaterons work?
Can someone help me customize a Drop ENTR keyboard?
I'm a huge 87-key (TKL) mechanical fan, and have been super happy with my Havit KB390L. However, I'm learning Russian and I basically can't get this keyboard w/ the Russian keycaps. So, I'm thinking that the Drop ENTR will fit the bill. What I don't know is if I can customize it with low-throw clicky keys. Seems I can get it with clicky Halo Trues, but I don't know if these are low-throw switches or if I can do that at all. Next, I need the Russian letters (and English if possible). I need help! And thanks in advance.
