So here's the quirks for fellow modders:
1) It's a piece of cake to swap in a Sanwa JLF, but the way the stick is mounted means you can't use a Seimitsu stick and I'm not entirely sure a Hori Hayabusa would go either
2) On the one I got, the quick disconnects for the buttons were stiff on the stock buttons but extremely loose on the Hori Hayabusa buttons I fitted. If you're happy doing some wire stripping and crimping on the (long and cable-managed!) wires in question, that'll be no problem for you - the more standard Sanwa OBSF-30s may not need this either.
The case is a lovely size - big enough to leave some palm rest if you fit a bat top, small enough it doesn't feel like it's eating lots of sofa or floor space. Replacing the artwork is a bit more awkward - it'd be nice if we had more sticks available at this kind of size and weight. Swapping the ball top out is actively supported, with a cut-out dial giving quick access to the bottom of the stick's shaft so you can hold it in place, unscrew the old top and screw on the new one with nothing needed but a flathead screwdriver.
This stick has several driver issues that cause it to function poorly on PC and there seem to be no concrete fixes online (believe me, I tried). Although, I had no issues playing on PS4. I was playing Guilty Gear on my laptop and there were times when the triangle button would bug out and not register any inputs after certain moves. That was the final straw that made me want to return this.
The casing feels rather cheap and flimsy as it is made entirely out of plastic, I have a Qanba obsidian and I can tell you the quality between that and the Drone made it feel like they weren't made by the same company. This is a shame because Qanba's sticks are usually pretty good.
The buttons are okay, they're not Sanwa as far as I'm aware but they weren't too bad to play with.
Overall, if you're considering a cheap(ish) stick I would look into the Mayflash brand as they are cheap and very easy to mod. Alternatively, get a Qanba obsidian or a Razer Panthera, more expensive but it's well worth it.
