    Okay guys.

    I have the red Hayabusa stick Vewlix, with Jasen's EZMOD/Brook UFB board (and a rather lovely Astro P2 panel) - but I want to put a HORI Optical Hayabusa in it.

    Now, I know you guys will understand. I don't want to do anything permanently damaging to my Vewlix - I like it so it can be returned to stock whenever I like..
    How do I power the Optical Hayabusa?
    It came with a 6-pin stick cable but obviously the regular Hayabusa is 5..

    I know I can cut cables and splice them together etc. but I'd like an idea that doesn't involve me damaging the original parts.

    1. Take the included 6 pin and extend all the wires with some solder and shrink flex.

    2. Zip tie them to the existing harness (so it looks clean and opens and shuts easily after install.

    4. Screw into the Brook UFB screw terminals. I run them under the board (between the UFB and EZ MOD) and screw them into the terminals. White should be +5V

    5. Plug it into the Optical.


    I did a couple of these installs with the EZ MOD at EVO 2016 and it was pretty straight forward and easy the way I mentioned it above. The "hardest" part is the soldering of the wires together.

    My modded VLX, using parts from focus attack, arcade shock and paradise arcade

    Changed the buttons out for sanwa clear/gold, changed the hori hayabusa to a hori hayabusa silent optical, put in kaimana LED's and a brook UFB

    still want to get an LED battop somehow and change the panel to a sega layout if possible

    I've just added my Hayabusa Optical to my stick too.
    Please no judgement on my wiring - I'd never even used a heat gun or wrapped wires before - so it was a bit nerve wracking for me :)

    My stick is a Hori RAP VLX Hayabusa.
    It's been fit with Jasen's EZ-Mod kit for the Brook UFB and Jasen's Astro City P2 panel (which I LOVE).

    Everything has been managed to be installed in such a way that it could all be returned to stock if I want.

    Your wire splicing is text book, so no hate here.

    @RagingAvatar Is your cable door broken too? I swear, for as expensive these sticks are, Hori decided to use a cheap piece of shit door to contain the cable. That thing breaks off so easily it's ridiculous. It's rare to see one still intact. LOL.

    No, sorry mines fine - I just remove it whenever I need to open it. As you say, it's so flimsy, I live in fear!

    Everyone has bad cable compartment doors. Hori has bad doors, mad cats has bad doors,

    Qanba has bad doors too. Even the new Obsidians have reports of snapped doors..

    Maybe I'm too gentle with my fightsticks. I have 3 vlx, 6 madcatz te, hori fighting edge ps3, and a few hori ps4 sticks. I've managed to without breaking a door. Fingers crossed. I don't have any qanba sticks through.

    All of my Horis and Madcatz stick doors aren't broken but most of them fall off so easily. Still pretty poor imo.

    Yeah sliding doors, spring loaded, magnetic locks, a lot of design options left just adds a few dollars in cost. A new Hori w\a detachable USBs with bottom plate housing like PS2 sticks had would work well too.

    I only need to open the door on my VLX'S when I charge them, which is every couple months at the moment (work and family reduce my proper game time), I played an hour of HD remix with my Diamond just now and it had 2 bars after sitting there for 6 weeks!

    Yea the DS3 batteries have a much better lifetime then DS4's. You could even put a small battery charger in the door with your wireless sticks :)

    I'm not sure what part on these doors break first, the top closing mechanism or the bottom 2 pegs, but some sort of magnet to close it would be neat.

    From what I've seen, when it gets dropped even a short distance, one of the little pegs breaks off. They should have just made those pegs bigger and stronger.

    I'm actually surprised that people on here haven't been forthcoming with attempts to reproduce and share CAD files of these doors...or at least sell 3D prints.

    recently the sega lindbergh cabinet has become the apple of my eye. has anyone here done-up their stick to look like a lindbergh cabinet? I'm thinking of doing this but would love to see pics from anyone whose done this. Hell, i just want more vlx pics from everyone whose done something to their stick. Mine is still stock (except for adding sanwa parts)

    That I do

    I have to double check if I still have the file.
