The Purito Electric is probably one of the best 2m build-it-yourself electric F5L RES model currently available. We now have the latest 2.0 version with many detail improvements.

The Purito is a direct descendant of the Pures and the Slight the Schweiger family concern have optimised the design as far as possible with current (2020) CNC technology. The main design change is to a lower aspect ratio wing to increase the Reynolds Number and give better overall performance and particularly nice handling. Despite the larger wing the weight has been kept the same, resulting in a lower wing loading and excellent performance in weak conditions.

The Purito flies like a homesick angel and despite its light weight the model has a surprisingly good speed range. As Greg wrote in the RCGroups thread "The big wing bestows a good launch, even when the wind is light; the airplane itself has little drag, so displays very good legs; handling is easy, allowing the pilot to concentrate on thermalling; and finally, the spoilers really make spot landings quite easy."

The amazing wing is the major improvement of this design. The main spar is a substantial carbon tube which gives the structure excellent rigidity. A multitude of ribs are threaded over this tube to give the airfoil shape. This is even better maintained over the critical front portion by utilising two sub-ribs between each full rib, almost eliminating covering sag, and reducing drag appreciably. Becuse the tubular spar is inset below the covering surface there isn't a discontinuity at the spar line which is great feature - this usually trips the boundary layer and causes extra drag.

The kit is beatifully made up with excellently CNC cut balsa and ply parts. The wing is built over/in a 3D jig which ensures all the ribs are perfectly placed and aligned. This can be seen in the clear photos in the English build manual. In addition to the manual, full size plans are povided for the tail surfaces. Also see the RCGroups Purito thread for detailed build info. Also use Google Translate on this very useful Purito thread.

** All motors apart from the geared Hacker will need the internal width of the fuselage to be widened a little. This can be achieved by omitting parts R25, R26 and R27 and substituting 6mm (1/4") triangular balsa to fill out the corners. Also all motors apart from the geared Hacker will need a little force applied between the fuselage sides (to widen them) when installing the motor. If you are not confident please select the Hacker A10-7L option.

Good service

My second electric Purito - still one of the best kits I've had the pleasure of building, and as always, first class service from Hyperflight - 5 days from order to my door in Durban can hardly be beaten.

Have not started the build yet. Quality kit, very well packaged, prompt delivery. Hyperflight will now be on my main list of suppliers.

Purito E purchase

I still canít believe I received this purchase from the UK to the states in four days! I will not be doing the build, but the parts quality look like a 10 to me.

The best quality wood I have seen

Received the Purito and accessories very nearly packaged. My first build kit for a long time. Certainly a fantastic, well planned and machined kit with best quality materials. Canít wait to get the build ready.

Great kit. Love how great the markings were. It made everything easy to take out. I am enjoying working on it.

Purito 2m electric

The purito is a good plane but I donít think I could have built it without the help from the internet. Just a simple plan would be okay. But I liked the jigs especially the fusel@ge jig .. canít go wrong. I usually make my planes from scratch. I liked the pushrods as well . Better than the springs. Also I have made the medina electric. Did not expect it to stall badly on the throttle on take off. Finally got an answer from armsoar saying they did not put down thrust in the model as it would take away the nice lines of the nose etc. okay but they could say in the instructions to take it easy withe throttle on take off. I added a switch for take off to put some down thrust in, and then on the glide take it off. All in all a good model

Great kit

I can only agree with Geoff's review. Enjoyable. I liked building an X-RES so much I rang Neil and asked what I could build next. I always need a project. I have built two full size aircraft, a Kitfox and an RV6, but past that now. Neil recommended the Purito. Sorry I have now finished it. Fantastic kit. Jigs are great. Routing of parts good as was quality of wood. Used Hacker motor in this model as it fitted straight in and glassed the fuselage for durability. Feel like building another but need to get on with chores now. Maybe next winter when I've flown the two models. Neil's 49inch Glider Bag holds them both.

A Joy to build

I'd seen one of these fly a few weeks back and was seriously impressed by the performance. The kit arrived very quickly (as did the other odds and ends I've ordered, thank you Neil) and within a couple of hours I'd completed the tail feathers. That was the easy bit. There are no step by step building instructions, these need to be downloaded. At this point I'd add that if you are fluent in German, I'd be inclined to use that version, sadly mine is not all that good so I was stuck with the English translation. It's a bit quirky in places, so take time to make sure you understand. The actual build is a revelation in how it should be done. Everything is built on a jig. It really is more engineering than model building and very satisfying. If care is taken to ensure the ribs are sitting in the jig nicely it's virtually impossible to build in any warps. The only tricky bit is the spoiler servo arrangement. I used the tiniest Ripmax servos with home made extension arms and that works well, but it's necessary to extend the leads. I replaced the leads at the servo end. (very fiddly) These then need to be fed through the small holes in the ribs before the plugs are fitted. Having glassed just the nose using lightweight cloth, I've fitted the little geared Hacker as recommended and are now at the point of covering the wings. An absolute joy to build so far and I'm very much looking forward to getting it in the air.

Purito is a competitive competition model

Had not flown this model much before a large Australian ERES comp. Flew my other known competitive model in tough conditions and crashed it. Went to Purito in difficult windy, low lift and gusty conditions. It was rock solid and next three rounds were 1000 pointers - cant speak highly enough of it, picks any low lift. Is controllable in difficult conditions. Placed 5th overall in large field after some prior poor rounds. The construction is a great example of good German engineering. It is almost impossible not to build it straight! The other good plane at the event was the EMedina or OzeRES V 2. I have flown neither but building an OzeRES 2 now. The Medina and OzeRES V2 are respectively an ARF and typical build yourself kit of same design. Great to see evolution in eRES models is ongoing.

Purito-E 2m RES

Late last year I built the Purito glider kit along with an additional electric fuselage to give me both options with only 1 wing. This did, however, involve building a duplicate horizontal tailplane, because this is not supplied as part of the electric fuselage kit. No problem, as the parts and layout are shown on the original glider plan. The effort was definitely worth it, as I now have the best of both worlds!
The electric version was maidened very recently in extremely light airs and was an absolute delight. A worthy competition model indeed - or just great up the hill. Having the option of electric 'get out of jail free' gives additional confidence to be more adventurous in exploring unpromising conditions. The Purito-E excels in these sort of conditions and so you rarely end up needing the power anyway. A very gratifying model that I doubt will be easily beaten for fun and performance.

Purito - E

Delivery time was fast and all in good order, Thank you to Neil.
Currently build is underway. Thought I couldn't find a kit quality better than the "Inside F5J" but the Purito is just that much better with CNC routered parts.
Going together with great precision, looking forward to flying it when complete.
Build instructions and build threads are very instructive, but being "old school" still like a set of plans, just a personal preference.

Purchased this model as an addition to my "2m RES electric fleet. As usual the service from Hyperflight was excellent. It is a most unusual kit in that there re no plans supplied with the exception of the tail surfaces and the spoilers. That said, I am about half way through the build and it it goes together very well. There is an english instruction manual translation available and this together with the build log on RC Groups makes everything very clear. Looking forward to completion. Will use the hacker A10-7L motor/gearbox. Also thanks to Graham for his review, which is helpful. Looking forward to the fiorst flights!

Flying the Purito Electric

With test flights successfully undertaken, it is time to give my thoughts on the Purito Electric 2 Meter RES Glider.
Supplied by Hyperflight, along with the Blue Bird BMS-101DMG Servos, the final launch weight is 465 grams. I have to mention, these servos, while not cheap at £18 each, are very very smooth.
Power is supplied by a Hacker A10-7L motor / gearbox combination, turning a 13Ē x 8Ē GM Prop and Spinner, power output measured at 9.5amps / 105 Watts on a 3S 350 mah Hacker Top Fuel ECO-X Lipo.
This battery was chosen as it gave the C of G at 75mm from the leading edge and proved a great choice in flight. There is no problem to get 90 seconds of full power running with only about 135mah taken from the battery.
90 Meters is very easy to obtain in less than 30 seconds, although the transition to smooth level flight is going to take some time to master, after flying high powered 4 meter F5J models.
The rudder is currently set at 70% Expo, and is still too fierce, some more work required there. Very slight input to rudder or elevator is all that is required, I think dual rates will need to be set up.
Very long floating glide and the slightest lift at 9.00am on a cloudy morning, saw a rapid climb out, very easy to achieve.
A lovely model, I canít wait to fly it on a hot summerís day.
