The Questor Project
Bill's Project Notebook


Questor is the working title I have given to this project, which involves the design and construction of a modular night-flying model airplane. My objective is to build a small model airplane that can break down into smaller, manageable pieces, and be carried in a lightweight custom backpack, or travel case, to allow the plane to be easily transported and/or carried into remote areas.

This project is as much about self-improvement as it is about building something new and fun to play with. A more serious application for a model of this design is one I hope to pursue, which is to carry aerial survey equipment into remote regions to scope out entrances to caves in exotic places like Peru.


The following pages outline the development of Questor:
