MAX Falcon-20 RGB custom programmable macropad / keypad will come in handy more often than not. Whether you’re entering data, doing calculations, or frequently using the number keys, having a dedicated Numpad can come in really handy. 

With our simple and easy programming app (Yes! you won’t need any programming experience to make it happen) you can easily repurpose each key: Use it as a numeric keypad or for dedicated shortcut keys  Best of all, everything you have programmed is stored in the device itself making it so convenient to use with any supported computers.

The PCB provides up to five layers of programming so you can make it as complex or as simple as you want to. Featuring twenty keys, RGB lighting, an anodized aluminum plate, and a 5-foot USB cable.

This macropad comes semi-assembled—making it a fun entry-level side project for those who want to learn to solder.

NOTE: This is a semi-assembled kit.
-The base kit includes an anodized aluminum plate, PCB, standoff screws, and nuts are installed.
-Rubber feet, bottom enclosure, riser feet, and backlit keycaps are included but not installed.
-Switches, micro USB cable, and wire keycap puller tool are optional.

By default, Falcon-20 RGB is pre-programmed with the following prefix keys.

I love it, build quality is incredible, the software is easy to use and features everything you need and expect for the price as well. You can custom light every key of course and also the 'bias' lighting. RGB brightness can be controlled, RGB layouts and key layouts switched. I miss nothing. Oh yeah, and it's really easy to solder.
A well built product, it was cool little DIY to do. One small thing I would add is a way to add more tilt to match tilts from your main keyboard. (I had to glue a piece of lego at the far bottom to do that).
This numpad is pretty awesome! A great starter into the mech keyboard building scene. The customer service here is above top notch!
The Falcon-20 RGB is exactly the type of programmable keyboard that I have been looking for for years.

I used it to salvage my old Kinesis Advantage I. Great keyboard with crummy function keys. To get around this shortcoming, I have used, for some years now, an X-Keys 20 key bar. The X-Keys provided better function keys than the Kinesis, but not great function keys.

But with the Falcon-20, I now have great comfortable function keys! Thank you for making this fine product.
I ordered the kit. It was simple and fun to assemble and spend time on the 40 solderings. Even more fun was to trouble-shoot my under quality solderings.

Thanks again.
Really nice product, good quality and easy to use configuration software! Delivery was quite quick considering I live in Netherlands.
Let me first say that the shipping was ridiculously fast especially around the biggest holiday of the year. Thank you so much for that. Secondly, I bought this for my husband who is obsessed with mechanical keyboards and building things, so this was a win/win. He loves it and uses it everyday. Thank you for the great product, fast shipping, and awesome packaging.
Absolutely great. Fully programmable and easy to use software included.

Love the customizatability of the LEDs! And a fun little project if you're getting into mechanical keyboards.

I wish Cherry MX Clear was an option when I bought!
Delivery : Received my MaxFalcon-20RGB within 2 weeks (not bad considering to Tasmania)
Product : Excellent - easier than I expected to program the keys.
Tech Support : Gave email response within a few hours, continued correspondence until my problems were solved. Remained polite throughout, despite my niggling questions.
One slight flaw : I have some macro commands that start with a decimal point (period), this works ok whilst the NumLock is on, but when the NL is off my dec point disappears.
not a major problem for me as I tend to have my NL on most of the time.

Max Keyboard: You can program using the "." key on the main keyboard section, that way it will not tie to the NL
So far working well, really like it. I wrote a full review on LinusTechtip Forum
