The Quickshot QS-149 is a flight controller released in Europe. The product name is "Intruder 1".

It can be connected to two joystick ports simultaneous and the player can be selected with a switch. This also allows the joystick to potentially be used with two different systems without changing cables around.

It has autofire for both trigger buttons, controlled by the levers on the left side. Trigger A is covered, and has a separate eject button to open the cover.

The multi-system select switch can be switched between (A) ATARI/COMMODORE, (B) MSX, (C) AMSTRAD or (D) SEGA.

Note: There are several other models of Quickshot "Intruder" flight controllers:

  • QS-146 Intruder 5 for PC
  • QS-148 Intruder 2 for NES
  • QS-150 Intruder 3 for Sega Megadrive

They all look very similar at first glance. Before purchasing for use with your MSX, ensure it looks like the pictures below, that it has the system select switch and just two trigger buttons.
