Jason Hazel aka quirk designed this neat 30% ortho using ergogen.

In the announcement on r/mk it was called Cupcake ("because the Pancake2 was an inspiration") but comments pointed out it looks like a satellite so it's now SatPad.

I've been playing around with Ergogen and decided on a 30% that could double as a macropad as my learning project. I messed up on the OLED (missing VCC trace, socket rotated 180) but overall happy with my first attempt – quirk.
