Review by: JerryPurito pod only
The parts are cut extremely precisely. If you are a precise builder, it is duck soup. I am not. Don't forget to put in the wing mounts without glue. My Caress pod/boom, without the 64th ply is 10 grams heavier that the Purito pod/boom with ply. Good engineering.
Review by: BrettPurito-E fuselage build
I bought the Purito -E fuselage kit last year to go along with my Purito glider kit during lockdown. The build was straightforward and enjoyable, in the same way that the glider kit was. Hyperflight's website clearly points out that, whilst the fin/rudder is part of the kit, there is no horizontal stabiliser included. The manufacturer's decision not to include the stabiliser was a little disappointing for me, as I wanted to have both glider and electric versions ready to fly with only the wing to switch over, without having to demount the elevator control. Fortunately, building a duplicate stabiliser isn't a big deal. On balance, I would rather have paid slightly more and had the parts supplied though. I used the recommended motor, prop, spinner and servos, coming out around 10gms higher than stated weight once the CG was trimmed.
As I've mentioned elsewhere, the flying characteristics of both the glider and electric version are delightful; both relaxing and stimulating simultaneously. Relaxing in that you can float around endlessly, or stimulating in that you can concentrate on hunting down the last ounce of lift. Twin spoilers gives very good landing control.
