Danger Zone is a unique aviation-themed key set inspired by the film Top Gun; the US Navy Fighter Weapons School, known as TOPGUN; and military fighter aircraft. The set’s yellow-on-blue colors are a tribute to the US Navy’s Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron, and the set features optional novelty legends incorporating phrases from actual fighter aircraft controls.
The set is sculpted in Signature Plastics’s SA profile, with a uniform row three for maximum keyboard and key layout compatibility. Legends are done in SP’s Gorton Modified house font—the same engraver’s font used on aircraft controls and displays since the 1950s. The legends will be doubleshot and all keycaps injection-molded in ABS plastic for the Cherry MX switch using the colors BFU (blue), GSM (gray), YY (yellow), and RAS (red).
Note: The parent set is a full 99-key base set for ANSI tenkeyless, or “TKL,” keyboards. Optional key packs will be available to enable compatibility with full-size, 60%, winkeyless, and other non-standard key sizes and layouts. All packs include only the keys pictured.
To avoid errors/confusion with the current checkout system, we will be changing the drop points manually for this drop. We are paying attention to the number of each child deal being bought as well. If they reach certain quantities, we will adjust their prices accordingly. You may notice fluctuations in your checkout price as we make these adjustments on the back end, but you will not be charged more for anything.
