Despite being a mini arcade stick, this fan favorite is a monster. It has a tournament lock switch as well as LED indicators. There is a bottom pad in addition to prevent slipping.

7. Qanba Dragon

Qanba Q5 Dragon Joystick Arcade Fighting Stick

The Qanba Dragon could not have been named more appropriately: it is quite like a dragon in size. The performance of the joystick and buttons is on point, and the rubber improves stability during play, but the Dragon truly shines with its other features, such as LED. The lights have a nice glow to them, and there is a light in the interior as well for visibility. That said, you can access the interior with one touch. Switching buttons, gates, and so on is easy. As for the braided USB cable, it can be wrapped around the back hook. On a closing note, there is turbo support.

4. Hori Fighting Edge

Hori Fighting Edge

The top panel is brushed aluminum. The Hayabusa joystick reduces input load by a factor of 15%. The stock bracket makes the joystick easy to replace in any case. The buttons have lower than average clearance, resulting in inputs that are quick. No learning curve is needed for the buttons’ Noir layout, which is good. The rubber pads on the bottom prevent the arcade stick from sliding. This is quite a weighty unit.

3. Hori RAP N Hayabusa

Hori Real Arcade Pro N Hayabusa

The joystick is responsive, there is a lot of wrist space, and the arcade stick fits comfortably on a lap. Although the layout of the buttons is Noir, no learning curve is involved. You may even like it more than the standard Vewlix layout. The buttons themselves are pleasing to touch. The touchpad being in the back of the unit prevents accidental presses. The hardware is sturdy, and the build is solid.

2. Qanba Obsidian

Qanba Q3 Obsidian Arcade Fighting Stick

This LED arcade stick has a joystick and buttons closer than average compared to the Qanba Pearl, which makes it stand out. Like the Pearl, the LED can be customized to always be on or only when a button is pressed, and you can carry the arcade stick using the sides. The joystick and buttons are responsive. The anti-slip rubber pads at the bottom provide balance, and add to that the decent weight of the arcade stick. It is quite comfortable to place on a lap.
