  • Product Description

    Hori, makers of the Real Arcade Pro series of Fightsticks, embarked in a bold new direction upon deciding to develop their own joystick lever and pushbutton.  Dubbed "Hayabusa", their first foray into a special brand was met with healthy skepticism, but the lever was embraced by many Sanwa and Seimitsu diehards.

    Their first pushbutton, the Kuro, was a solid initial offering, and paved the way towards their current standard used in nearly all of their Fightsticks - the Hayabusa Matte pushbutton.

    Matte Surface. Low Profile

    Hayabusa button front and back appearanceOne of the biggest distinctions of the Hayabusa is its use of texture.  Unlike most pushbuttons, the Hayabusa sports a matte finish, along with a soft grain texture and rounded edges.  This unique eye-catching appearance allows fingers to more easily travel across the entire button layout. 

    Another aspect of the Hayabusa that is hard to miss: it is low-profile.  Similar to the Seimitsu PS-15 Pushbutton, the Hayabusa's button housing is shorter.  The design effectively shortens the activation distance before switch engagement.  You'll find that it doesn't take much to register an input, often critical where frame-accurate execution is needed.

    Hori reviewed the best features of long respected button designs, and combined them into a stronger and more responsive unit.  Additional benefits include:

    • Increased durability, up to 60% less wear and tear as claimed by Hori.
    • Tighter tolerance, due to reduced space between the plunger and housing/rim.
    • Equal response regardless of where your fingers touch the plunger
    • Softer, yet more responsive and precise due to reduced vibration when pressing down.

    Compatible with FA Silencer with tabs removed

    Silencer Pad Compatible

    Much like the Seimitsu PS-15 series pushbutton, you can install a Silencer Sanwa/Seimitsu 30mm Foam Washer by removing the top and bottom tabs of the foam washer.

    Compatibility with Fightsticks

    Though Hori makes no claim to the Hayabusa's compatibility with other fightsticks, its use of .110 gold connectors and standard 30mm size ensures a likely fit with any existing fightstick or custom whose hole spacing is already designed to accomodate pushbuttons such as Sanwa OBSF or Seimitsu PS-14 series.


    24 vs 30mm

    When processing orders, a frequent mistake we found among new players is choosing the wrong size for action buttons, such as punch and kick.

    Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm). In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm.

    UPDATE: Owners of Neo Geo AES Joysticks will need 24mm pushbuttons instead of 30mm (Thanks SRK's DEZALB)

    Below is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.  Throughout this article, we will mark 24mm in green, and 30mm in Orange.

    Checking the Proper Size

    button-30mm.pngAnother way that players can misinterpret the pushbutton size is by measuring the pushbutton plunger.  Have a look at the diagram at right.

    The plunger - the part that you press down to represent an input - is 25mm or a bit smaller in most 30mm pushbuttons.  Often this leads to the conclusion that one needs a 24mm button and not 30mm.

    Similarly measuring the button rim can lead to confusion, as it is intentionally larger than the button hole it is placed in.  You don't want to use these measurements.  Instead, review the button housing diameter, or the hole the button will be placed in.  You can do this with a caliper - a digital caliper is often quite helpful for this and other arcade-related projects.

    Control Panel Configuration

    Most Fightsticks from MadCatz, Hori, Qanba, and similar will use these two sizes.  How the buttons are used will depend on the model joystick that you own. Over time, we'll provide example configurations for specific popular Fightstick models and arcade cabinets using the color key for 24mm (green) and 30mm (orange).  We'll also expand the key for future models if another size is introduced, and we offer for sale.

    1. Some of My Favorite Buttons

      I've been a Sanwa guy since I started playing on stick 2 years ago, but after buying a Hori RAP N, which include the Hayabusa buttons, I've also become a Hori button fan.

      Good points
      + Very sensitive due to the low profile (doesn't require to push down completely to actuate)
      + Matte surface feels more comfortable to me, especially when I double tap, plink, or piano.
      + They feel almost identical to the Sanwas, but with slightly more tension, As a heavy button presser, this provides me some "cushion," so my fingers don't tire after long play.

      Low points
      + Not many color options like the competition (but I won't take a star away because it's about the performance)
      + I use silencer foam washers underneath the plungers in my Sanwas, and placing them in the Hayabusas made it feel less responsive.

    2. Perhaps the best low profile buttons on the market

      The Good
      + Quick, snappy, agile.
      + Smooth matte surface, grime from sweat doesn't form on the plungers like some mold building up.
      + A lot less wobble on presses, unlike Sanwa OBSF which feels very loose and to a certain extent, cheap.
      + Actuation force is actually the same as a Sanwa OBSF, the only reason the Hayabusa is quicker is due to the low profile height.
      + 'Plinking' on the Hayabusa is child's play!

      The Neutral
      ~ Sensitive buttons, but very subtly less so than Sanwa OBSFs. However, the Hayabusa can still actuate without pressing the plunger all the way down, so watch out for double inputs.
      ~ Hori does not make enough color variances for this. Focus Attack doesn't even carry the Blue, Red or White versions that is available on other stores. You have work to do FA!
      ~ Slightly more expensive than Sanwa OBSF and Seimitsu PS14 counterparts, but I don't think the Hayabusa buttons are overpriced at all.

      The Bad
      - None. Really, this button does everything right. It's even priced reasonably!

      For those who wants a quick and snappy button, but without it being wobbly, mushy and even slightly hollow sounding (yes I'm referencing the Sanwa OBSFs) - the Hayabusa buttons are for you.

      Are these the absolute best buttons on the market right now? Probably not. Since buttons are so preferential and the differences are down to nitpicking OCDs, I would personally say the Hayabusa buttons are at the very least - the best low profile buttons on the market.

    3. Excellent design

      Well designed and really smooth feel. Love the matte texture and i found them to be near identical to sanwa aside from the slight tension difference. Great product, highly recommend. on Aug 12th 2017

    4. Great Buttons

      Felt far better than Sanwa buttons, but that's my opinion. They have a shorter travel and feel more punchy. Sanwas have felt a little mushy to me so far.

      Build quality was great and installation as easy as you would expect from a snap-in button.

    5. Really damn great buttons.

      Recently ordered a set to try them out. Definitely high quality. The low profile offers a good middle ground between sanwa and seimitsu buttons. If Focusattack was somehow able to supply the red, white, or blue variants we would be in business. on Aug 8th 2017

    6. Great Buttons

      I had a buddy recommend these buttons to me, but I was skeptical. After trying them out I'll never bee able to go back to others. Buy these whenever they are in stock! on Aug 6th 2017

    7. A step up from the Kuro buttons!

      I have been using the same Hori Kuro buttons now for over 2 years, and I still love them. So when I heard that focus attack had the Hayabusa buttons I bought 8. At that time a few of the kuro buttons were going bad and i was using Sanwa buttons. Once I installed the buttons i was like WTF!? Instantly I could notice the difference between the Sanwa and the Kuros. The Hayabusa buttons were less sensitive than the kuros and the sanwa. Not in a bad way, because if you've used kuro buttons you will know that anywhere on the face of the button will cause an input. With the Hayabusa buttons you have to hit them like you mean it. No baby light taps or you won't get the input. The buttons are pretty snappy too. Plus you can use the silent pads by cutting off the tabs. If you're curious about these buttons give them a try. on Jul 31st 2017

    8. My personal pick to Sanwa OBSF

      I started with Sanwa buttons on my custom stick, but I eventually got a RAP4, and the buttons were my biggest concerns. I think these feel better than Sanwa buttons, but they're slightly less tactile. They're also really good for sliding. on Jun 18th 2017
