This entry level, small joystick is great for kids and new players getting into fighting games. It connects via USB and is an officially licensed Sony product that is compatible with the PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 and PC. Although small and light in size, the full size buttons and stick provide a real arcade feel. Warranty is 1 year. Instruction manual included. 12.8" x 4.5 x 9" dimensions in inches. 2.64 lbs in weight.
The buttons and the stick themselves are knockoffs of parts often used in Japanese arcades. The buttons themselves feel fine - they're not quite as hair-trigger sensitive as a genuine Sanwa part, but I never triggered them with a light touch anyway.
A really great stick for beginners, BUT you have to rip out the stock joystick. I don't care if you have to do it with your teeth -- the joystick is way too loose. Spend about $25 (no more!) and get a Sanwa JLF stick and throw it in there. It's a super easy mod that requires no soldering, but you'll also need a 5-pin wiring harness (a few bucks at most) if you don't have one.
Good parts in a light plastic outer box. Excellent discount box with great buttons and a smooth, responsive stick. The design is excellent for playing in your lap or seated on the the ground and even has a space in front for the cables to sit when not in use. Great guts in a nice, cheap outer shell; it cuts the right corners for a good price. As long as you're not a salty, stick throwing maniac you should be fine. If you are, don't lose. Or buy two.
This is a great arcade stick for under $60. I was looking for something that works with PS3 and PS4 without needing to have the regular controller attached to it. The Qanba Drone was the best option for the price. Once I got it I found out the square gate just wasn’t for my over aggressive American hands. I needed an octagonal one which was typically installed in most US arcades as opposed to the square used in Japanese Arcades.
So I should start this review off with, "I'm not really a fighting game person"
The stock stick and buttons aren't as responsive as standard Sanwa parts, but if you're looking to buy this you're either okay with that or looking to modify the stick anyway. I often play with a light touch, those with more assertive motions will get on better with the stock stick.
Used product for better games control. Very good product for computer games.
Great for starting but the Qanba own brand stick and buttons feel really sloppy and cheap, but once you switch to sanwa you get a really nice travel stick due to it being really small
the fighting stick does not feel too cheaply made its average but the price is not to bad
This is my first fightstick purchase besides some old-school SNES stick I used years ago. It works great with PS4 and I mainly wanted it to play Street Fighter V. Works really good for it! I am new to the semi-pro fightstick scene but for the price this was a really great stick to start with. Not super heavy but comfortable in the lap and doesn't move around during aggressive gameplay. The only bad thing with this unit is the buttons are VERY clicky and loud. My wife, who was upstairs, came down into the basement one evening because she hard all the loud clicking and laughed at me when she realized I was playing video games. I do admit, I need to refine my play style. This does not work on XBOX one but does work with PS4 and PS3. I have not tried it on my PC yet...I plan on upgrading to an Obsidian as soon as I save up.
