This is the best arcade stick you are going to get for this price. I'm just a casual player so I don't need one of the more expensive ones. The biggest downside to the Drone is that the buttons are quite loud so if noise is that big an issue for you, then this stick is not for you.

This stick is the first stick I've ever purchased. Its light weight and easy to take to locals. Everything feels very responsive and I've really been enjoying it a lot

The stick is a little sub par but playable. It does have an issue of misreading the input if the stick is simply flicked down. Overall I love it!

The Drone is considered an entry-level stick, but it's definitely at the high end of entry-level. Both the stick and the buttons are extremely responsive, and it has a great look about it. I understand that swapping out the buttons and ball top are also quite easy, but it's not something I've done personally. I do wish the cord was a bit longer, but that's a minor gripe. If you're thinking about something like the Hori Fight Stick Mini, at least consider putting down a little extra and upgrading to this gem!

As my first stick I didn't know what to expect. It is really cool. It is very light and small, don't know if that is a good thing. The buttons feel kinda cheap but for the price it seems reasonable.Had to download a program for it to work with PC, but I am having fun with it on SFV.

I also bought the Carbon last year. Side-by-side they are very comparable minus the PS4 support.
Honestly, this is about as cheap as you can make a stick and still be great. It's very well engineered being easy to mod and lightweight. If you like heavy sticks, there is room to add weights in the case. The cord spot is clever, and adds to the minimalist approach. This is the best stick for the price at this time. Next jump in quality will cost $150-$200. So you could still change the buttons and be okay.
The yellow stock ball is very cheap with a protruding seam around the equator. You will want to buy a new grip with this purchase if you are more than a casual gamer. The stock buttons are just fine.

I shipped 2 of these up to Canada, and even after the USD/CAD conversion + duties, it was still cheaper than some of the alternatives offered by Canadian sites. Swapping sanwa buttons in was as simple as removing 2 screws plus the balltop and popping the cheap buttons out for better ones. If you really do need a PS4 stick and don't happen to have an extra $200 to $300 lying around, this is a great choice (just change some parts if you're picky, it's not that expensive or complicated)

I put the word budget in quotes because this stick is in the price range of other budget sticks, but has a GREAT size and feel. Is moddable, and allows for consistent gameplay. Anyone on the fence about owning a stick or getting a first one, you will not be disappointed.
