I'll start posting updates for my newest baby here.

The US version of this stick was a piece of crap. The giant balltop is just a big dpad, and the buttons are rubber membrane. Gutted it, removed most of the plastic from the inside, and installed a custom stick using hori parts and cherry switches.

Now working on making some custom 24mm buttons...

    I had someone in a rival FGC who used one of these; never got to take a picture of it though.
    I wonder if she's still got it lying around.

    Since the original buttons are membrane gamepad trash, I decided to make my own. Gonna use cherry MX switches. Already printed custom mounts and glued them to the PCB support plate:

    Made some custom plungers too:

    Remind me of a a future project I am planning out.
    I going to try to make a PC Engine/Turbo Grafix game pad.

    It's pretty much similar to this mod on here

    Finished!

    Using the original PCB support plate to house the switches. Wires are routed through the bottom. Lots of modifications to the original plate to make everything fit.

    Nice job! Super simple / kiss / why didn't I think of that

    Any chance I could get a copy of the 3d file for the plungers? Did you use blender?

    I used Blender to modify a .STL file I got from Thingiverse. PM me your e-mail and I'll send it to you!

    I got a old busted NES Archer Competition Pad, its a Radio Shack in house brand.
    If it Works, then project boxes for sticks is the next steep.

    Also nice custom 3D printing
