1. Qanba Drone

Qanba N2 Drone Joystick Arcade Fighting Stick

The Qanba Drone is a fan favorite that is simply a powerhouse. The buttons and joystick are spread apart conveniently, and they are quite flexible. The arcade stick features a tournament lock switch as well as LED indicators. While LED adds pizzazz, the tournament lock switch avoids accidental secondary button presses. There is an anti-slip bottom pad to makes sure the arcade stick is stable during play.

Instead of a USB compartment, there is room under the wrist space for that. Although the black and yellow artwork is gorgeous as it is, you can stick any artwork vinyl up top. By the way, we provide custom artwork!

When talking about mini arcade sticks, the fighting game community holds this arcade stick in high regard, and its reputation speaks for itself.
