Fidrildi 3.0 Fidrildi 3.0 is a 34-key unibody split designed by ButteredBread5255 for the 0xCB Helios controller. KBD.news

Fiðrildi means butterfly in Icelandic, and looking at the shape of
Steve Joiner's (aka ButteredBread5255) monoblock split, this is not a coincidence.
The keyboard is designed specifically for the
0xcb Helios devboard by the keeb.supply guys Jakob and Conor. The Helios is soldered in to minimize the profile so that it can be sandwiched between the top plate and bottom PCB.
Inspired by the Reviung and Corne, it has a slightly more exaggerated column stagger than the Corne, and increased slant angle (by 8 degrees) compared to the Reviung.
