    Default "New" NES controller?

    I only saw 2 QuickShot controllers in the DP guide. Are these Bike-style controllers "new"?

    I see them everywhere I go in Ottawa. I bought a set a year ago at a pawn my sister used to work at. Now they seem to be popping up everywhere. When I went to index my controllers (usually just do games) I couldn't find it.

    That controller (QS-129NL) was released in 1990, so I don't know if you mean new in that sense. Unlike other controllers from Quickshot (the Maverick 2, for example.. an NES Advantage clone), the only "official" name listed on the box is "CONTROLLER" and "GAME CONTROLLER." But the word "Flightgrip" is printed in a few spots on the box, so that's what I've always called it. Hope that helps.


    Also, this comes off of the box:

    " 1990 Bondwell Global Ltd. Quickshot is a registered trademark and QS-129NL and FlightGrip are tradenames of Bondwell Global Ltd. All other product names are registered trademarks or trademarks of their respective companies. "

    And it's got the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality. I'm assuming my box is the Canadian release, as the text is in english and french, and the mailing address listed is "Bureau Des Ventes Canadien: Brampton, ONT. L6T 4Z7" . And that's more than you probably ever cared to know about the QuickShot FlightGrip controller.

    I meant "new" as in new for the DP book.
    My model number is just QS-129N - no L on it.

    Wow! WHata cool looking controller. I'd love to buy one if anyone has one for sale, or knows where I can get one (or if you wanna get me one ).

    I've never seen one of those. Here's another weirdo quickshot controller:

    I think it was marketed towards paperboy.
