Quick Facts

  • The Mayflash Arcade Stick F300 Elite readily comes with Sanwa parts.
  • It is also compatible with the Neogeo Mini.
  • This is a clone of the 8BitDo N30 and Venom Arcade Fight Stick.

Performance

Just like its predecessor, the unit is weighty and firm, but the small size still leaves less wrist space. Finally, the joystick feels hefty, and there is less travel distance for an input to register, meaning that there is no longer a dead zone. An additional cable is still needed for some platforms.

Hardware

The weight is average, but again, the size is small. Unfortunately, a cable is still needed to connect the arcade stick to a native controller when on the PlayStation or Xbox, and a second connection is of course needed to connect the arcade stick to the console. There is a third party wireless dongle that can be purchased.

Make sure to grab the Magic-S Ultimate for PlayStation 5 compatibility.

Appearance

While it is a step up from its predecessor, the design remains uninspired, but at least the black and beige combination is somewhat pleasing to the eye. More nuance in the design would have been appreciated or at least doing the minimalist art style justice. Fortunately, one can at least print out an artwork sticker to stick right onto the surface to give the arcade stick some flair and save the day. We have our own custom artwork service.

Conclusion

This is one of the best mini arcade stick options you can find.

  • Solid
