Lily58 FAQ

Can I change or upgrade the controllers on the R2G?
The MCU controllers on our R2G kits are baked onto the PCB. This means they are unable to be removed or upgraded.

Does the R2G support Choc switches?
No, currently we only have an MX version on the Lily58 R2G. A choc version is planned for the future.
We can offer can offer our assembly service for the Lily58 Choc hotswap kit.

I would like to make my keyboard Bluetooth.
To achieve this you will need to choose Nice!Nano controllers. We are currently unable to provide batteries, more information can be found on Nice!Nano page.

What controllers should I choose?
Pro-Micro | QMK
Best value for money. A good place to start for your first build. Doesn't play nicely with C to C cables.

Elite-C | QMK
Premium option featuring a strong USB-C mid-mount, with extra pins and better bootloader.

Elite-Pi | QMK | KMK | CircuitPython
The controller with room for activities! Featuring an RP2040 MCU, this has much more memory for firmware features. Relatively new on the scene. Drag and drop bootloader.

Nice!Nano - ZMK
A development board with bluetooth and onboard battery charging circuitry. Requires a 3.7v lithium rechargeable battery. Better for advanced users.

Can I use a different contoller for each half of my build?
We allways recommend using a matching set of contollers for your build. Mis-matching some controllers can cause compatibility issues.

Do you offer an assmebly service?
Yes, details can be found on this page.

How many switches do I need?
This build requires 58 swicthes. All our switches are sold in pack of 10, so you would need 6 packs.

What keycaps can I use?
For MX builds, a good place to start would be our DSA split blank set.
Most standard 60%+ MX keycap sets will 'work' but you may end up with some miss-macthed profiles and legends.

For Choc V1 builds we would recomend either MBK Glow (for RGB) or MBK Ergo (for non-RGB).

How do I flash my contollers?
Please see your specific contoller page for more details. Just give send us a support message if you get stuck.

Can I use the Nice!view?
Our PCB's don't currently suppot the nice!view as they require an extra pin.

Should I socket my contollers and OLEDs.
If you are willing to take on the extra cost, we will allways recommend to socket your controller.
(Especially when using the Nice!Nano)

It means in the unlikley event your PCB or controller dies, you can swap them out or re-use them in new kits.

To achieve this, you would need the following items.
2x Machine Pin (Contoller) Sockets
2x OLED Hotswap Socket
2x Mill-Max Socket Pins (or you can use through-hole diode legs as as a cheap alternative)
