    Is the Shadaloo Transporter XL bag the only one available for the VLX currently? 120$ is really hard to swallow for a bag.

    Yes, but protecting a $300, collectible Fight Stick shouldn't be cheaper out on. The Splitframe bags are super high quality with a lot of padding in them. The $60 Qanba (which is too small) has no padding.

    I agree with Jasen. The VLX is a $300+ arcade stick, some of us put a hundred dollars or more in mods into our VLX sticks to customize it further.

    I always say, and the new guys always scoff at this, you get what you paid for.

    I'm getting a new top sheet made to go with Jasen's 6 button VLX layout - probably going to print to vinyl and then bond it to plexiglass.

    I have everything ready to go - just looking at suppliers for the print and plexi (here in the UK).

    Can anyone advise on the thickness of the plexi? The original looks like 2mm but I'm not 100%. Obviously it'd be great to hear from someone who's done similar stuff with their VLX.

    I'll post pics when she's done :)

    There was no original plexy. Hori sticks do not ship with a stock plexy. The original art is just printed on to a sheet of soft plastic.
    As for bonding the vinyl plastic to a sheet of acrylic, Do not even try it.
    If you aren't careful the glue can act as a solvent and ruin the print.

    Better off getting something like roll-on, spray matte or shiny laminated for the vinyl, or I'm sure places that print like auto shops can print on vinyl and apply a sheet of laminate too, not sure which is tougher though.

    When I print and cut for the VLX panels I do it in a couple stages:

    1. Print on the vinyl.
    2. Let it dry for 24-48hrs.
    3. Laminate it with satin vinyl laminate by Oracal.
    4. Put it back in the machine to cut.

    Sign shops should follow the same method. There is spray on film specifically designed for solvent based inks, but its definitely not as tough as an actual film.

    Thanks for the advice, I have found a place that can laser cut a thin piece of acrylic (plexi) to spec for a fair (cheap) price, and so I was thinking of bonding a print to this somehow. And yeah - probably using professional help as I really have no clue about what glue to use and how to do a decent job of it!

    I make the stock plastic top to be 2mm so I was gonna aim to copy this. Similar to Jasen I found a supplier who could do everything necessary, but this was almost the price of the stick itself...(£200).

    And sorry Jasen - you mentioned laminating a vinyl print before. I'll check out the spray/film options for laminating as it would afford a bit more room for error. Here I could laminate the bleed too as opposed to going down the plexi route which would require a cut around the edge (before the bleed).

    I got my hori vlx hayabusa a few days ago. Like others have reported I had problems with the buttons. 2 of my hayabusa "falcon" buttons was squeaking pretty bad. I read threads that said after some use and breaking them in the squeak will go away. I thought I should share my faster fix that worked for me. What I did was pop off the center and rotate it 180 degree and reinstalled it. Squeak is now completely gone for both buttons. Hope this helps others.

    I had to re-use my older Hayabusa Joystick I bought from @FreedomGundam years ago since that one doesn't have the wobble problem.

    I think that was on sale on eBay UK last week

    Ok oh thanks. Man, all I've seen on there lately are the last two releases--at laugh inducing prices.

    I'd gobble up one each of the first two gens if possible. Those are the only ones I really like.

    Yup. I bought it from someone in the UK on eBay.

    @mizuzu. Awesome. Looks amazing. I was planning on doing the same. Did you strip off the paint or use a panel from a diamond.

    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.
