You might struggle with this, is your current keyboard faulty?

Might be worth obtaining a normal ST keyboard and swapping the key caps from the Falcon keyboard.

What Falcon Keyboard do you have? The USA ones are quite sought after so you may be able to swap a USA one for a UK one

Hi all,

The keyboard I have works fine but it's not dark grey in colour, it's pale like an st keyboard. I asked in this thread (viewtopic.php?f=15&t=30899) if Falcons were ever released with light coloured keyboards but the consensus seemed to be no. So that's what's prompted me to try and find a proper falcon keyboard as I assume my computers previous owner(s) swapped out the original.

I appreciate it might take a long time to track one down but I though the adage 'if you don't ask you don't get' was appropriate. I seem to remember one being sold on amibay in 2015 or last year so I have a slight hope an orphaned one might be for sale! Best-Electronics do have one but the price plus shipping plus possible customs charge is insane!

Thanks!

$99 still seems a lot even without shipping. Especially as it's probably used.

I'm still looking for a US keyboard for my Falcon.

The UK ones seem to be the more common ones, I think.

I have a UK Falcon Keyboard, and want a US version.
I think all you need to do is swap out the Keycaps, TOS should deal with the correct key press.
If true, I'd be willing to do and even trade of the keycaps. Much cheaper shipping!!

The size of left shift and the key next differ on UK and US keyboards. On Us keyboards that key is not there so no direct swap for key caps.
As far as I know this is the same for STs too.

Understand if you call me *** for the photo but my point is to show you the US/GER/UK falcon keyboards and differences.
