Thanks!

Looks like the same model got several names (e.g. controller, starfighter, ...).

This should be the QS-127 for 9-pin joyport machines.

These joypads look cool, but they are not. Because they use IR, you have to point directly to the base so the reliability in games is not good enough.

Predseda, I agree with you there... out of maybe 10 sets of IR joypads I have had, only one set (for Mega Drive) that worked well... I mean, good enough to actually play fighting games, etc. that need accurate response... 15 foot range with no line-of-sight, 30+ foot with line of sight....

On the other hand, it has that "I WANT IT" syndrome. Thats why I bought
(see attachement) recently. Totally useless, but cool

Yes, I know this is an old thread. I have at least 6 unused Quickshot joypads incl. package lying around here. Unfortunately I have no receiver for them...only 2x3 joypads.

And just a remark: They are not as bad as commented here: As soon, as you clean the contacts (with contact spray), they are pretty good usable...
