I'd say the worst part of it is the joystick itself. There's no accuracy problems or issues with it double-triggering, but the "throw range" is huge. Some people have described this as it being "loose". To sum it up as easily as possible, there's a much wider range of motion in terms of moving it up / down / left / right than a genuine Sanwa stick, which can make some motions more difficult than usual. For example, super jump cancelling in a game like Marvel Vs. Capcom is made more difficult since the distance between triggering down -> up -> down is farther than a Sanwa joystick.
However, you can fit a genuine Sanwa stick in here, and there are modding videos for just that all over YouTube. It's basically one step removed from a drop in replacement, no soldering or real technical know-how are required. If you wanted a PS4 compatible stick and didn't want to drop $200 or more on it, you'd do well to snag this. If you haven't already used a high end Hori stick, played on a japanese arcade unit, or touched a MadCatz TE stick back when they were plentiful and cheap, you probably won't even notice or care about the differences I'm describing. But this is well-priced, plenty functional out of the box, and for about $40~ more, you can replace the buttons and joystick with genuine Sanwa parts to end up with a world-class joystick, fit for a pro.
The last thing I'll mention is, size-wise, it's almost too small to hold comfortably in my lap.If you're accustomed to using larger sticks like a MadCatz TE or one of the Hori RAP sticks that allow you to adopt a wide sitting stance, be prepared to close your legs together more than you're used to. Playing with this on a table or desk eliminates the issue entirely of course.
-1 Star for the size.
-1 Star for the "loose" joystick.
BUT, the stick included will not allow that modification. So, I purchased a Sanwa stick along with their octagonal gate and the 5 pin ribbon cable and, NOW, it’s awesome. Much less play and dead zones. You can swap out the buttons too but they didn’t bother me like the stick did.
The design is nice, and the stick itself has the right amount of weight. It's better than a lot of those smaller arcade sticks, this one looks like something you could actually take to a tournament. Don't be fooled by the cheap trash on here - you buy a $50 stick and you'll get a cheap piece of junk with awful lag. The Drone isn't perfect, but it's the best starter stick on the market.
These things are easily fixed by replacing the parts so that isn't so bad either. Overall a good beginner stick or a stick for those who want to see what playing on stick feels like.
