    @wazwuz The Golden Fanta joystick needs a smaller sized collar, similar to what is found on the 309MJ to accommodate for people with Japanese cases, also the most widely avalible cases you can get are Japanese style with JLF. I have to mod the stick I own to put the Fanta in it, buy a super expensive case OR buy some obscure, ugly case from Korea when I Love my Madcatz TES. If the collar on the 309MJ doesn't affect performance, that would be the last mod needed to make the best Korean lever. HINT HINT lol

    @wazwuz would you consider putting out a myoungshin fanta "airbag" kit? Something similar like what you had with Crown's "fanta upgrade kit" through FA. But you would include a grommet (or more than one), microswitches, the bottom plate (I remember you making one before with the ASI etching on the bottom) and possibly an actuator (aren't airbag actuators smaller than stock?)

    Or is that too much to ask for? Would I be better off just getting another joystick, as in the airbag through Makestick?

    I will consider that for the future. right now my priority is providing non existing Fanta parts to give more options.
    Fanta Airbag is Very good stick IMO, and it was cheap too. getting one is a good investment.

    IMO the real Fanta is the one that use collar, because it fuctions as the "gate". I know it is hard to mount Fanta with collar to sanwa mounting (heavy moding), but I think it will worth the effort, since it will give you full experience of Fanta stick. The goal of this Golden fanta is to make the ultimate Fanta experience, so I choose Fanta Airbag as a base.

    but, I will keep your idea that for another project.

    Apperentlly red silicone is too hard for me. I'm asian, I don't have big strong hands, but im not small either, and the latex that come with fanta airbag is a bit too soft for me.
    To overcome problem like this, I have an idea to make this setup for grommets so we can have every tension and find which that works for us.

    Green silicone is 45
    Light/sky blue silicone is 50 (additional grommet)
    Latex inside airbag is 55 (original airbag latex grommet)
    Dark blue silicone is 60 (this is work best for me now)
    Red silicone is 65

    Also I have idea to make the cones actuator, diameter is 17,5 to 16mm (about 5' slope). The idea is to make parallel (more) contact point to switches actuator when enggage, just like sanwa JLF actuator did.
    Yesterday i have made the prototype.

    Update
    I think why not complete this project by providing 11mm shaft. Since I have try 10mm and i still want to make the throw even shorter.

    Now we have complete collection:
    Gromet
    45 ; 50 ; 55 (airbag stock); 60 ; 65
    Actuator
    7mm; 8mm; 9mm (airbag stock); 10mm; 11mm
    Shaft
    14.5 ; 15.5 ; 16.5 (airbag stock); cones (16,5 contact point) ; 17.5

    With this Golden fanta mod. You can have 125 different combinations.
    5 actuators X 5 shafts X 5 grommets (including stock)

    So. If you want this additional parts:
    Sky blue silicone grommet 4USD
    Bronze cones actuator 6USD
    Brass 11mm shaft 9USD

    you can reply my email. And I will send you link for payment. Or just paypal me the part you want +5% (paypal charge me 5% of the payment).
    I will confirm you additional orders by email.

    @slaycruz I emailed him yesterday, since it was late afternoon over here, I wouldve thought he would have received it already. I ordered these for my community and now they all have to wait on me. The crappy thing is I could understand that one or two were 303s on accident but all 7 were 303MJs instead of the 309MJ... With international shipping, this is going to be difficult.

    @wazwuz 65a grommet, 11mm shaft, 17.5mm actuator and airbag matsushita switches. I think this will be Great for SHMUPS and Tekken. Also how are you testing these parts? Have you been using them in game in fighting games? I just wan't to know if any of these parts are going to be hard to use in fighting games like Tekken.

    I test it by playing some ranked match in SFV. I have no problems using any fanta for playing any fighting games. Every combination will have thier own trade off, for me I like short throw and sensitive stick, also fast neutral, then I choose shaft, actuator, and grommet thats support my preference

    BTW, I haven't received your payment yet @ProgressiveBalance . and tomorrow is the last day to make payment. latter than that, I have to give your reserved slot for waiting list, seek your kind understanding on this. so we can distribute this project ASAP to participants

    I see you have made dust washers too, @wazwuz. I think that is a nice touch. Is it completely flat or is it similar to the Myoungshin in shape?

    My $0.02. While I haven't participated in this project, it's been really cool seeing it both come together and how quickly it came together. I also have to imagine, especially after seeing what the finished bronze shafts look like, that there will be demand for more of these. From a purely business standpoint I would suggest trying to do some sort of tie-in with the upcoming Tekken 7 console release. Again, @wazwuz seeing how you put all of this together was quit impressive.

    yes, it is last minutes idea, and the result is perfect for this project. it is flat, I use laser cut.

    Thank you, It is a great project, this community is very helpful. and I have gave in all my idea to this project.
    When we have positive review about this project, I will definitely make it available to the public, so everyone can have customized Fanta according to their preference.

    @wazwuz It sucks that I couldn't be part of the reviews but that doesn't really matter. I'm glad to see that there is a way to get one of these in the future. And who knows even Focus Attack or makestick might be interested. I would say a custom made bat-top would make this so much cooler. I'm just not a fan of the Sanwa bat-top and to be honest it doesn't really offer a range of colors.

    @wazwuz he's right custom bat-tops are the way to go. you could probably even color code them to the corresponding throw distance kinda like the silicone grommets.

    I will be installing a Fanta to my TE2, but just have a couple quick question. When drilling through the plexi and steel, would it be best to drill from the bottom (steel side) or top (plexi side)? Does it even matter? I just don't want the plexi to look like crap once I'm finished.
  • rbuniaorbuniao Joined: Posts: 184
    @Clandestine You missed out on some TE2 panels that accommodate the Fanta lever from Jasen's Customs.

    Please update the pic when you install red battop on Golden Shaft :). I think about using Red battop for the retail release.

    maybe someday I will try make uniqe custom battop. for the moment, my priorities is getting input/review/feedback from participant.
    btw throw distance is determined by the shaft diameter on collared Fanta.

    On the topic of bat tops, if theres a way the myoungshin bat top can be reproduced (non matte) but in different colors, (and normal 6mm threading) i think it will be cool for those used to the stock myoungshins but want different aesthetics.

    sanwa bat tops are nice, but i personally dont like the matte feel of it. it doesnt feel "fanta" for me...

    I for one would love to see the return of the red myoungshin/taeyoung bat top :)
