Newly minted owners of the Brook PS3/PS4/Switch Wireless Fight Board looking for a means to install the antenna into commercial joysticks now have a solution from Buttercade, a 3D printing professional that excels in designing unique products for the fighting game community.
Antenna Socket Installs into Spare Button Hole
The WFB Antenna Socket is a screw ring system, fitting securely into a spare 24mm button hole of many commercial joysticks. It can also attach to DIY models that don't possess a Neutrik port. There is no drilling involved - the housing slides into the 24mm button hole and ring screws onto the housing.
Surface Mount Variant
The 12mm (.47 inch) surface mount variant works well for a Fightstick whose internals leave space at a premium, and maximizes the antenna's signal strength.
The surface mount can manage material thicknesses up to 1/4" (6.35mm).
Installation of Antenna to Buttercade WPB Socket
The Brook PS3/PS4/Switch Wireless Fight Board's mini antenna has a washer and nut to secure it to openings. It also utilizes a wire to coaxial connector, which attaches to the antenna.
- First, slide the antenna onto the socket from the front.
- Next, with the antenna seated into the socket, secure the antenna connector end to the socket using the washer and nut.
- Screw the coaxial connector into the antenna connector end.
- Finally, thread the antenna wire through the 24mm button hole and then use the socket screw ring to secure the Buttercade WFB socket to the back of the button hole.
