Hey, bit late, but if you're still looking at these sticks, one of the newest "best cheap sticks" is the Mayflash F300 Elite. It's basically an F300 with sanwa parts already installed which is nice. I've had mine for a few weeks now and it's held up fine. It's pretty compact too which is nice for travel (which I currently am), but not quite as heavy as I'd like. About the same weight as the Qanba Drone (the same "tier" of fight stick) but with better parts. The standard Drone uses Qanba's own buttons and stick though and the Elite is all Sanwa.

If you can wait, they're making an F500 Elite as well, but I'm not sure when that's dropping! Your last, best bet is the EVO Drone on sale right now that comes with all Sanwa parts as well! It's really between those two in my opinion! Hope this helps!

u/Nozohomie · 1 pointr/fightsticks

What’s your limit per se and your systems you want to use it on? Reason I ask is I know a couple really good budget sticks. (Mayflash F300, Mayflash F500) but the best budget stick in my opinion that’s actually on sale right now I’d recommend the Qanba Drone. Easy to mod too (like I modded mine out with Sanwa parts and Hayabusa buttons) here’s the Amazon link of it while it’s down in price at $69

Also if you’re willing to go up about $30, then this is a great stick on sale too and actually comes with Hayabusa matte buttons (which are great buttons and would mean you don’t have to mod it too much if you like those. I personally love Hayabusa buttons too)

u/Eatmypussyplease · 4 pointsr/fightsticks

IIRC most say a square gate is the best but just like almost everything about fightsticks ultimately it's up to preference. Here's a good breakdown. The plates on amazon are so cheap that you could get the octagonal and switch between to see which one you'd prefer.

If you don't want to worry about upgrading then getting a stick with Sanwa parts is your best bet, so between the three sticks you've put up I would definitely go for the Panthera. The TE models this gen aren't as good as the TE models from last gen so I wouldn't recommend that and I would absolutely avoid the Hori just based on the fact that they use their own custom parts. The Hori parts aren't bad but a stick with Sanwa parts is a "safer" option.

But I would recommend considering the Quanba Obsidian. PS4+Ps3+PC support, Sanwa parts, and from my understanding(I haven't done anything to mine) it's relatively simple to customize. You can't go wrong with the Obsidian or the Panthera really.

u/TouchOfDoom · 1 pointr/fightsticks

These are the best sticks at the moment for ps4, IMO.

Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai $150 (black/white/blue/red) (Hori / Sanwa / Seimitsu)

This stick has a Hori branded joystick and buttons (Hayabusa & Kuro) Hayabusa has a good feeling, even considered slightly better than Sanwa by some.

Kuro buttons are quite a different feeling, they are matte with less sensibility than sanwa and have more travel from pressing the button to reach the bottom and being detected.
Most people get rid of their Kuro buttons and swap with Sanwa's tbh, but some like it.

Arcadeshock sells these sticks already modified with Sanwa or Seimitsu parts for some $10 bucks more.



Qanba Obsidian $200 (Full Sanwa) - Side leds, made more of metal. Shiny, solid, wide and looks cool.



Razer Panthera $200: (Full Sanwa) - Front button to open and easly access the stick, lower input delay than other sticks (except Broo's UFGB).



Qanba Dragon $300 (Full Sanwa) - Unnecessarily expensive, stick is a tank, easy open design and like 90% of full metal body.



Hori Real Arcade Pro V. Premium VLX $300 (Black/Red) (Hori parts) - So big it's uncomfortable to travel with, playing with it feels awesome I got one.
Cons are the joystick sounds a little bit too hollow when moving around (you can get used to tho) and has tons of input delay. With some modifications (changing the PCB with a UFGB and Kuro for Sanwa buttons) it's an awesome stick.



u/kemosabeChiba · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Thank you. According to Mayflash the joystick & buttons are all Sanwa. Here’s the amazon page:

I am pretty sure Amazon would not sell it if it was not genuine. There a quite a few positive reviews too (Amazon & YouTube). This stick was the perfect option for me, Sanwa components without modding for under £100. Only other options would be the Razer Panthera which is £200 and which I don’t like as it has the 8 way octagonal gate which is not standard in Japan.. or, the Qanba obsidian which is same price but has the standard Japanese square gate (which I am determined to get used to & have always used with my old Hori sticks). I will probably go Qanba in the future.

For now I will get a replacement from Amazon and hope for the best. The one I have at the moment, other than the popping and momentary button failure (which has happened once so far), has been good. I just don’t feel it is acceptable with Sanwa’s status & reputation. I understand the button issue may be a PCB problem- which won’t be Sanwa then (I guess that what you meant by it being Mayflash also). But the joystick issue is odd then, unlucky as it will be a Sanwa issue probably.. Maybe I should have just modded a fightstick, but then if any issues I could not return it, unless I paid double for the razer panthera or Qanba Dragon, which allow modding without voiding the warranty I think.

Anyhow getting into my fightsticks seriously now, so won’t give up. Back to my Hori’s until I resolve this issue.

u/zrith1 · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

I'm assuming you are on ps4/pc? There are a ton of good sticks to pick from.

  • Hori Fighting edge

  • Razer Panthera

  • Qanba Obsidian

  • Madcatz te2/te2+

    They are all in the $200 price range and are all great sticks. Personally I have a te2 and love it. For the most part, it just comes down to preference. If I had to pick, I'd probably go for the Panthera since I don't think Madcatz is making sticks again after they came back.

    All of these sticks besides the Hori fighting edge use sanwa parts. The Hori stick uses their own parts, but they are really solid from what I've heard (you can swap buttons/joysticks in any of these sticks, so it isn't the biggest deal).

    In terms of using custom art, the Te2 is probably the easiest. The Panthera and Te2 are the easest to mod overall because of their clamshell designs where you can open them up with buttons on the front, but all of these sticks are easy to mod.

    I've tried an obsidian and didn't like the shape of the case or the way it looks, but that is just my preference.

    I'd just look up each of the sticks and see which one looks best to you. You can't really go wrong with any of them.
u/brybry44 · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Speaking from experience and from other people telling me. Its best not to get a "beginner" stick. All I've done is switch out the parts to the stick since I've got my mayflash f300. Its essentially not even the same stick. It's best to save up the money for a real good stick you'd be happy with. I recommend Hori or Qanba

u/doomboy222 · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

So I got the Mayflash F500:

I got 2 orders of keyswitch testers:

  1. I popped open the F500 and swapped the buttons I wanted.
  2. I took out the stick and that left a hole in the box.
  3. I then cut the wires connected to the stick and reattached them inside the box.
  4. I hung the wires out the hole and made sure I knew the connections for which direction.
  5. I then took 1 of the acrylic key-switch testers and drilled the center out so the wires could be fed through the key-switch testers without a center and into the key-switch testers that will hold the keys.
  6. I super glued the cut out center key-switch tester to the key-switch testers that will hold the keys.
  7. Then I fed the wires of the stick through both key-switch tester so that the right wires would go to the right keys and then all the wires would feed back into the box.
  8. I soldered the wires to the keys and slotted the keys into the key-switch tester.
  9. I tested out the keys and their functionality before finally super gluing the key-switch tester. I did mine on an angle but you should feel it out first.

    This took a couple weeks because I don't own a drill and I didn't want to get one just for this project. So I waited for a friend of mine to lend me his drill. I also bought a super cheap soldering kit on amazon to actually attach the keys. I would recommend looking at YouTube videos to learn how to solder because that was the most complicated part.
u/NapalmSanctuary · 1 pointr/fightsticks

My first fightstick was a Qanba Q1. I replaced the stick and buttons with Sanwa parts as per the usual advice. I really dug it. So much so, in fact, I'm thinking about buying a Qanba Drone for a backup stick and adding a Sanwa JLF and Hayabusa buttons(my personal preference ever since I bought a Hori RAP4). I'm also currently planning a custom fightstick build, but thats neither here nor there. If you're set on buying a stick, the Qanba Drone should make a great first one, assuming the quality is on par with the Qanba Q1. Its a bit on the light side but it can be weighted. You can get stick on weights at any hobby store like Hobbytown USA etc. Just remember to switch out the stick and buttons with Sanwa parts. Heres a video guide for switching out the stick and buttons.

Just an FYI for when you're removing the balltop, you twist the balltop off. Do not twist the screwdriver. Thats just for holding the shaft so that it doesn't spin while trying to unscrew the balltop.

I hope you find what your looking for whether you go this route or not

Qanba Obsidian

  • Currently on sale on their main website.

    HORI Fighting Edge

    Razer Panthera Evo

    Hori Rap 4 Kai

    The 'Hori Rap 4 Kai' used to be the most popular until the 'Qanba Obsidian' came along. From what I've seen, the Qanba Obsidian is the most popular stick right now. The 'Razer Panthera Evo' is an updated version of the 'Razer Panthera' and it's a solid stick from what I've read.

    Personally, I'm looking to get the 'Hori Fighting Edge' next because the button layout got me curious and the aluminum panel seems really nice.

    I have the Qanba Obsidian and Hori Rap 4 Kai so I can speak a little about those.

    >Qanba Obsidian

    Quite big in size and heavy. Definitely sturdy. Lots of room to rest your arms on. Custom art work replacement is easy. Same goes for replacing the buttons. The miscellaneous buttons up top are a little too small and fat fingering a button happens sometimes.

    >Hori Rap 4 Kai

    The size and weight lean towards average. It'll rest on your lap nicely and not feel overbearing. Custom art work replacement requires a little work because the default artwork has strong adhesive binding it to the steel plate inside. Replacing buttons is no problem. Miscellaneous buttons are on the right side underneath the right wing. You can also rebind buttons.
u/Trance_UK · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

The new models of the Hori RAP 4 Kai should all have Hayabusa stick & Hayabusa buttons with their updated PCBs which has an XInput mode in addition to PS3/PS4 mode and reduced input lag. I ordered one off Amazon last week and it's all there.

Personally I prefer the Hayabusa lever + buttons to Sanwas. The stick movements feel smoother to me than my Sanwa sticks, the difference in resistance is noticeable and I find it easier to instant air dash and whatnot.

The Hayabusa buttons have noticeably shorter travel distance compared to the Sanwas, it's kinda like comparing Cherry Red MX to Speed switches.

I also very much like that the stick + buttons are slightly further spaced from each other, it makes the whole experience feel less cramped.

Looking at the listing on - it looks identical to the listing on the UK site (notice how on the last 3 pictures the stick has a little grey strip along the right hand side with a legend of what buttons are under that right hand side ledge, my RAP 4 Kai has this and is the updated model!).

I'd pull the trigger on a RAP 4 Kai, if you got a PS3/PS4/PC switch & matte finish buttons you're good to go.

In regards to warranty - I thought it was illegal for companies to refuse warranty because of stickers?

Edit - Forgot to mention the gate:

I would say stick with stock parts as long as you can before trying out things like different gates, be patient with getting used to the controller. Building muscle memory will take time!

I remember when I first started out I tried all sorts of nonsense like stiffer springs, octo gates, bigger actuators, hitbox etc. but in the end I wound up on a stock RAP 4 Kai and all I really needed to do was find a comfortable setup and git gud.

On the plus side I can now switch between pad/stick/hitbox/keyboard at will and it'll take only a few minutes to get combos down haha. I'm still tempted by the hitbox dark side but for now unless I can get a specific style of custom hitbox made I'll probably just use this stick now.

u/Varmintbaby · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Get the Qanba Drone dude. I think that works on PC too and it's a better stick. You can also mod the Drone and it's from a more reputable stick maker. You could also look for a Qanba Carbon which is the same body as the Qanba Q1, which was one of my first sticks and worked great. Here's a link to it:

It also has clamps that you can clamp it onto a desk with which is pretty cool and works better than you might think it would. It's also cheaper.

u/Competitive_Bench · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Aw damn, the SoulCalibur VI RAP N went back up in price. The PS4 version was $106 several days ago the last time I checked on Amazon and there was a good seller on eBay that sold it for around $85 to $95 which is where I got it from. Anyway, I do second this. It's my first fightstick and it's a blast.

The regular RAP N is priced lower than the SoulCalibur VI version on Amazon at $126.97 right now to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the SoulCalibur VI RAP N being $158.99.

If you're okay with used fightsticks, there is a seller, a pawn shop apparently with good reviews, selling the PS4 version of the Hori Tekken 7 RAP N for $99.

Personally, I wouldn't buy it not because it's used, but because of the price. From what I gathered, the Tekken 7 version is more of a collector's edition. It's usually more expensive than the regular RAP N and the SoulCalibur VI which because it was attached to a less popular game, is sold for less than the regular RAP N where except for not have these rubber mats under them, the same thing the Tekken 7 version lacks if I recall correctly, it's the same fightstick with a different art and case color. That is just me, though, if you really want a RAP N, like the Tekken 7 stock art, and are okay with the price, then sure.

Another "used" fightstick is the Rap 4 Kai which was mentioned by another user on Amazon. Amazon Warehouse currently has a "like new" offer for the Rap 4 Kai and it's $116.85. I've had good experiences with Amazon Warehouse, but there have been some misses like they sent me the wrong items. Not all that bad since you can just send it back and get a refund.

Someone else posted a thread about how the Razer Panthera Evo is on sale on their site and their eBay store for $140. The one issue with the Panthera Evo is that it can be difficult to install a Korean lever. You did not mention any 3D fighters like Dead or Alive, SoulCalibur, or Tekken, so it probably won't matter much, but in the future if you ever get into those, especially Tekken, or you really want to try out a Korean lever, then it could be a pain to install.

There's a user selling the Qanba Obsidian here. I do not want to imply the user is a bad person, but do be careful. The thread's title was not changed, but they're asking for $125 now.

u/wilkamania · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

You can get one of these to save you a lot of time and experimenting: Brooks Ps3/4 to XboxOne Converter. About $43 on amazon.

For you to do the same, you'd have to buy a Brook Universal Fighting Board, which is $90+shipping alone. Then you'd have to put it together. They have prewired kits for $100. It's not bad until you realize you have no home button (never used an Xbox One, assumed it has a home like anything else). Depending if you use the select button or not, you can always wire that to the home button, but switch them back when it comes time to update the board.

The plus side is if you buy the UFB, it'll work on pretty much all the current systems and PC out of the box. Not a bad investment if you plan on playing on different systems. Also the lag on the UFBs are very very minimal, better than some stock sticks according to tests.


The downside is that route gets very expensive. I have built numerous sticks out of older sticks of all kinds, it adds up. My current "Stick" (hitbox made from an old madcatz TE round 1) ended up bring $300+ over time. But it's a fun hobby none the less.

u/----------_---- · 4 pointsr/fightsticks

Buy this. This is the same as the HORI RAP N, which usually runs $170, but has been on very good sales recently because it is the SC6 edition.

I'd advise against getting a cheap stick like the Mayflash F300/500, Qanba Drone, etc. If you just want to buy one to dick around with mods on, then they're fine (stock parts are of poor quality), but if you end up liking playing on stick you're going to end up wanting something better anyway, so may as well pay slightly more now to get something of quality. That's my opinion anyway.

u/Sypheck · 1 pointr/fightsticks

What exactly are you interested in, the case? Seems like this one's pretty much in tact. I'm guessing the bottom wire is for the madcatz LED which is of no importance. Not sure why he took off that bottom bracket off in the first place though.

If the case is what you're really after you might as well trash that pcb in favor of a brooks universal fighting board. However if you want to keep the pcb you will need the custom madcatz button harness which are very hard to come by these days. You can see the 20 pin header where it goes to on the pcb. Here's an amazon listing for it. I'm not much of a modder so I'm not sure if it's possible to remove that header and directly solder some regular wires on there like the ones you linked.

It also isn't clear whether it includes the usb cable to connect to your console.

Honestly it doesn't seem worth the hassle to keep the original pcb. You can probably find youtube vids on how to mod it with the Brooks UFB and make it compatible with all systems as well has having the least input lag.

u/Gotee12 · 1 pointr/fightsticks

I have a Mayflash F500 that I use between my PS4/PC/Raspberry Pi/Switch and it works perfectly.

HOWEVER, there are a few things to consider.

  1. It is a cheaper stick. Everything is swappable, which is good. But it only took a day before the stock buttons start squeaking. I've already swapped the buttons with Sanwas and have a Sanwa stick on the way as well.

  2. To use it on your PS4, you'll either need to keep a PS4 controller plugged in to the front USB port of the F500 or buy Mayflash's ~$20 PS4 dongle. I have the dongle and it works as advertised.

  3. By the time I bought Sanwa buttons/stick and the dongle, I'm pushing $150 in total spent on the F500. This is the cost of a brand new Hori RAP/etc. However, I did not want to buy one Hori stick for my PS4/PC/Raspberry Pi (does the Hori work on a Pi?) and then a second Hori stick for my Switch. I figure if my F500 PCB dies, I can buy a second F500 and still come out cheaper than having bought the two Hori sticks. However, if I wind up having to buy a third F500 for the PCB...

  4. If you get an F500, and you want to use better sticks (Sanwa, etc), you'll need to buy a 5 pin harness as the stock stick does not use one. Amazon link to the 5 pin harness.

    All that said, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    The stick itself has usable stick/buttons but it doesn't take long to see the need to upgrade, in my opinion. And the upgrade process is simple. To me, it made sense to go the Mayflash route as I only need the one $150 purchase to use across all my gaming platforms. I just hope this thing doesn't start burning through PCB's as I do not want to have to buy and store two different sticks.
u/Bionic2307 · 1 pointr/fightsticks

I got a Venom Fightstick, very nice, easy on the pockets. Even Desk uses it. Best part is that it is highly moddable. I replaced both my buttons and stick with sanwa parts. Highly reccomended.

It is available here:

u/calamityadvent · 3 pointsr/fightsticks

i used a hori fighting commander for a while before i finally got the scratch to invest in a stick. i really like it, and still use it every now and again just for fun. i also use it when i play emulators and some platformers.

the dpad is solid and face buttons are slightly oversized. i find it to be a really satisfying pad all around.

u/Gitaroobear · 1 pointr/fightsticks

I can't think of a decent Xbox One stick at that price. Maybe EVO weekend something may go on sale, but you may be best off getting a Mayflash F300 and upgrading the buttons and stick when you see fit or getting a Mayflash F300 Elite which already comes with Sanwa parts.

Mayflash F300 Elite on Amazon

u/Tiramenty · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Great job on this one! it looks awesome!

I´m trying to mod my mayflash f500, I just bought a Sanwa joystick from amazon, but I´m not sure if I need this piece to attatch it

Could you give me some tips on it? thank you!

u/olbaze · 1 pointr/fightsticks

>Now I'm back and looking for an upgrade. I am a mechanical keyboard guy so I like a big stick with nice clicky, deep buttons. I play PC and PS4 with a bit of Xbox one and Switch so a universal stick whould be optimal

The multiple console part is going to be difficult there. There's very few sticks that are multi-console without being very, very expensive. If that is a top priority, then Mayflash F300 Elite or Mayflash F500 Elite are your best options. Anything else and you're looking at way, way beyond 200€.

>The sticks I have found so far are the RAP Hori and the Razer Panthera. And so I stand between the choice of Saneva Vs hori parts, and I don't know what to choose I told you what buttons I like but I never got to experience the arcade days so I don't have a preference and most people tell me it comes down to "the feel" without specifying how they feel.

Hori makes variants of their sticks that work on each of the given platforms, but they don't have a single stick that works on any two consoles. Razer doesn't make Switch products at all. Note that you can buy adapters that go between any two consoles, those cost about 40€ a piece. If you end up going the route of adapters, get a PS4 stick, as the XB1 and Switch variants won't have a touchpad, which is used for some PS4 games (SFV comes to mind).

As for the buttons: It doesn't really matter, both are good. If you end up not liking them, from one to the other costs less than 3€ per button.

u/shiokenstar · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Not sure what your price range is, but the Qanba Drone is a solid entry fightstick. It doesn't come with the Sanwa parts that many consider to be top of the line, but they're amazing for the price.

The upcoming Hori Pro N is a little pricy, but it’s PS3/4 and PC (xinput). I have the Japanese version as well as a few others of this body type, and it’s hands down one of my favorite. The little bit extra up front is worth it, IMO. I’ve been replacing a lot of my sticks with the hayabusa parts that come in this.

u/Real_nimr0d · 1 pointr/fightsticks

When I look at the amazon page here:

it says on description that it has Hayabusa stick but kuro buttons but as u scroll down to the image below, it says its both hayabusa stick and buttons, also if you look on the product image of the box, it says kuro buttons, i'm so lost right now. XD

u/FatalCutieTTF · 1 pointr/fightsticks

What do you think of this one?

I think I actually like this one a lot, I looked up a review of the mini and it wasn’t great, and I want to build an arcade cabinet in my room. And I think I may be able to use this on all my consoles (including PS2, I’m getting CVS2 tomorrow) so what do you think?

u/gongfuren · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

The F300 is fine for your purposes. There is also an Elite version available ( that already comes with Sanwa parts and costs about the same if you were to mod the non-Elite model.

I recommend the Hori RAP N ( as well, since it's about as as cheap as a new F300 Elite, has a better button layout, and already comes with quality Japanese arcade parts.

u/Captainmcspanky · 3 pointsr/fightsticks

I bought a mayflash f500. It's 89 dollars on Amazon. You can change the artwork easily to customize it which was a plus. Out if the box it's a good beginner stick but if you want to make it even better it's upgradable with sanwa denshi parts.

u/Shanghaied66 · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Another to consider (edit, it's basically an upmarked M300 with bluetooth):

I did a full Sanwa mod on it, wasn't too bad. I think you should be able to get a JLF and buttons for around $40.

Works on PC, switch, and Android and the wireless works pretty well.

u/bkn1090 · -1 pointsr/fightsticks

You can swap all parts with sanwa if you want to but the stock parts are honestly fine to start with

u/hugs_n_giggles · 1 pointr/fightsticks

>I can’t find which stick is in the Mayflash F500.

>Are both arcade sticks identical or completely different?

Identical for the most part, the difference is the button colors and that's probably it.

>MagicBoost from F500 is suitable for Joytron?

Probably, the PCB should be the same.

>Mayflash and Joytron the same company?

The design is mass made in China so really any company can buy a bunch and brand it as their own. I don't think Mayflash and Joytron are the same company.

>Joytron will be a good stick as the first stick?

It's fine.

The Qanba Obsidian is on sale on, 219CAD, no taxes. Little over your budget but worth it.
Better than the RAP Hayabusa.

u/Phanatiic · 1 pointr/fightsticks

If you wanted a Hori RAP 4 Kai, it's ~ $210 aud including shipping off amazon uk, pretty cheap considering EB sells it for $237

You can also grab a razer panthera for ~ $280 on ebay using discount code 'PLAYER' which provides 20% off ($70); also use cashrewards for an additional $5 off.

However, this offer expires on the 31st.

u/tawoodwa · 1 pointr/fightsticks

hey man i am undergoing the same process as you, except I decided to go with the Qanba drone and then purchased a set of 8 sanwa buttons and a sanwa joystick for about 40 more, all in all ill have a pretty decent stick part wise for about 97 dollars which i think is a decent deal

u/yoimdumbsry · 1 pointr/fightsticks

The F300 Elite is what you are looking for. I personally have a F500 that I swapped with sanwa stick and buttons which I love. Size and weight are probably going to be the biggest factors. The F300 is a bit smaller and weighs less.

u/Mr_Brezz · 1 pointr/fightsticks

This is the best deal on the market right now and it's a high quality stick for half the price of any other high quality stick. As long as you can live with the artwork I would suggest this, that's if you're playing on the ps4 anyway. The main difference is this one has Hayabusa stick and buttons in it as opposed to Sanwa. I've heard good things about Hayabusa parts and they're pretty popular but I personally have no experience with them. All I know is some people prefer them over Sanwa if that tells you anything.

u/littleprincerex · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

I’m not sure if it’s today-only but at some point amazon started giving the Qanba Obsidian for only $160

u/the_loneliest_noodle · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

I can't say much to actually taking it apart, but the pro controller just uses bluetooth, Seems a bit expensive to buy one to tear down as I can't imagine you'll have much use for the rumble and gyros, which is what I assume adds a lot of the cost to it's pricetag.

For ease of conversion though, Why not use the guts in one of these?:

Cost less than a pro controller anyway.

u/koupS · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Yes the pcb tend to be faulty at some point. Mine still good after 1 year+. There is no rma with mad catz.

But for this price you can still replace the dead pcb with a brook or w/e else and it's still a good deal tbh.

Or you can maybe try to get the Hori Arcade Pro 4 Kai
It's cheaper but no sanwa and still a great stick

The panthera is 180+ £ and don't seem to be found on

But for me the tier list would be :

Razer panthera; Quanba obsidian; TE2+ and then Hori

If it's anything like my SF4 SE stick you'll need a USB card (I use this) with an an old Intel chip(driver or something) and Joy2key.

if you can find one in stock anywhere I'd recommend the Qanba Drone
$79.99 retail

The N30 Arcade stick from 8Bitdo is $60 and are also well regarded. You could swap out the buttons/stick, or borrow the wireless guts.

For PCB.

You can try dual modding used fightpads for Quad mod. More work but you can sometimes find them for less than 30 each preowned.
So, <60~ for both pcbs.

Ones I used...
PDP Mortal Kombat X Fightpad
Hori Fighting Commander 4

Other benefit of this is no firmware updates.

A good cheap stick for option 3, would be the Venom Arcade Stick. No soldering required to mod it, just buy the buttons and stick you want, and plug them in. Although you'll need this cable for your stick.

I'd recomend this for under 100$. I use it as my travel stick. Mayflash F500 Arcade Fight Stick for PS4/PS3/XBOX ONE/Xbox 360/PC/Android/Switch/NEOGEO mini

Solid size, easy to pack for traveling, and if you plan on modding.

Try this one out. Ever since I got that, I have had no issues using my MadCatz SFIV TE Stick on my PC. Heads up though, you literally have to unplug > plug the usb cable into the slot every time you open your PC for it to work. I figured it was a small constraint compared to the benefit I'd get moving forward as I have 2 japanese arcade sticks that I got for my PS3.

After doing some digging, I actually found an "Elite" edition of the F300 which comes with a Sanwa joystick and buttons. Although I'm not as experienced as you are, it's relatively cheap and works on both PC and Switch. What are your thoughts on it?

u/taitaisanchez · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Amazon's out of stock

Trying to find anything locally has been a huge bust.

I don't trust online inventory reporting, period.

u/DJXtremist · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Similar except for the layout/placement of the buttons.

The Rap 4 uses a Vewlix layout with the start/options button directly to the right of the buttons and is the cheaper of the two


The RAP N uses the Namco Noir layout, is slightly smaller and has the start button in a little compartment to the upper right of the buttons and is slightly more expensive

Hmmm been a few months since I used mine, I'll try it and see if it's still working when I can. It's this one right?

u/Drazon · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Have you looked at the [Qanba Q1] ( or the [F300 Mayflash] ( ?

These were the two that I was looking at before upping my budget to the Qanba Q4 RAF.

I think they're able to upgrade to sanwa buttons and levers but unable to change the panel artwork without printing out a massive sticker.

u/lakislavko96 · 1 pointr/fightsticks

I would add at under 100 USD this one.

F300 Elite Arcade Stick F300 Elite for PS4/PS3/XBOX ONE/Xbox 360/PC/Android/S... via @amazon

u/Brazenology · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Not sure what the pricing would be in your area but give the 8bitdo N30 Arcade Stick a look. If you're looking for nostalgia then this might tick the right boxes for you.

u/ThompsonZ · 2 pointsr/fightsticks

Since you are from Australia like me you will have issues finding good deals. If you are patient try to wait for prime day and get a stick on amazon with prime since the major costs for us will be the delivery fees and added GST. In terms of recommendations, i personally go either qanba obsidian or razer panthera.

The Hori stick is currently on sale and a good deal(not sanwa parts though) if you have prime but i personally wait for prime day for qanba obsidian as that may drop to 138 USD or lower like last year which is about the same price as the current Hori arcade stick.

I have a razer panthera which i bought this year for about 230 AUD but would've waited for the qanba obsidian on prime day if i was patient this year or black friday/cyber monday.


If you are gonna spend bellow 150 AUD most likely suggest qanba drone(evo drone is better) but i personally wouldnt spend money on arcade sticks bellow as they wont either have sanwa parts or you may regret it once u want to get more premium sticks.

PS3/PS4 to Xbox One Controller Adapter this is the one I got and on their website it said its compatible with my fight stick

u/Ryoshien · 1 pointr/fightsticks

Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick TE2+ for PlayStation4 and PlayStation3

Mayflash F300

Mayflash F500

Also 8bitdo apparently has a fight stick that works on Android too.

I'd go with the Mayflash sticks though since I see people actually buy those and post them here (usually with Sanwa parts swapped in on Reddit though lol).

u/VaractorEnd · 0 pointsr/fightsticks

Sorry it took a while, I was at work. You can buy a replacement cable here.
Mad Catz TE2 Replacement USB Cable for Tournament Edition FightSticks
This should be compatible.

u/gershmonite · 3 pointsr/fightsticks

Have you looked at Hori Fighting Stick Mini? Besides custom work, it seems like one of the smallest available models that don't force you to carry around a dedicated backpack or case, if you're including stuff like books and notebooks.

Hori Fighting Stick Mini for PS3, PS4, and PC

Hori Fighting Stick Mini for Nintendo Switch and PC

Doesn't look like they have a model for Xbox systems, unfortunately, unless I'm completely missing something.

I can say I have never seen the obsidian go lower then $160 so I think that's a steal. As for the TE2+ the pricing gets tricky since they don't make it anymore the price seems to always be inflated a couple months ago they where at over $300+ easy. I would say this sale is about as good as it is going to get until EVO since the prices on sticks only seem to drop around the release of new Fighting games and DBZF is huge right now so they are pushing them hard. But of course you do get random stuff like the Panthera being $140 I even missed out on that sale. But once the hype goes down for DBZF you won't see a sale on them for easily 6 months since they are a very niche product. It has gotten to the point where I get excited every time there is a huge fighting game out even if I have no intention of playing it since the sticks will finally come down in price. Here is the sales history of the TE2+ on amazon, Obisidan, and Drone. You can see its crazy how they rarely go on sale and when they do it is always with hype of a new game or Black friday. I mean hell the obsidian seems to never be on god damn sale, I would say if you wanna buy buy now before we enter the drought but that's just me.

Never seen that before. As an alternative, check out the PowerA Fusion FightPad or the Retro-bit Saturn controller. There's also the wireless Saturn and Gensis pads from 8bitdo and Retro-bit (but I'm always paranoid about delay in wireless PCBs) and the HORI Fighting Commander (but it has a + shaped d-pad).
