The Mayflash F500 is another budget arcade stick, and it is bigger than the Mayflash F300. The acrylic panel of the multiplatform arcade stick makes customization easier. Also, the metallic cover and base increase both weight and security. The buttons operate better than its predecessor. An octagonal gate is provided as an accessory, and replacing it is rather simple. The same applies to the buttons due to the easily visible screws found at the bottom. Another improvement over the predecessor is the inclusion of a headphone jack.
