I'm guessing about 12.5 lbs?? If I can find an accurate way to weigh mine, I will.

A better question might be how do they fly? How well do they auto?? Auto performance is very important to me. I'm getting older and seriously considering a gasser but not if they fly like a slug!

I can't comment on how well they fly due to the rules here, I can only say that the Whiplash Gasser doesn't fly like a slug at all.

My Whiplash G is definitely no slug;and at 6Kg dry, flies lots lighter than my Spectra G's , and whilst I've probably only done 200+ autos with the Whippy G , I'd have to say it's as easy to auto as any other high quality machine.....

Let's just say that after putting 100 flights on my Whiplash, I went back to my "old Favorite" gasser and I ended up selling it a week later for a second Whiplash. There are lots of video here and "elsewhere" that show just how agile the Whiplash is.
But you are correct in that flight abilities really negate any arguments about weight.

Unbelievable is how they fly.. I've been getting real comfortable with mine lately as its completing breakin and it just powers through some of my worst manuever attemps with barely a grunt. Really impressing me..

Autos?? Hadn't tried it on purpose yet. But I was having so much fun yesterday that I ran it out of gas. Well into minute 15 I heard it happening and realized immediately.. Hit hold and feathered it straight in. Nothing but the fluttering of blades..lol.

Filled it up and flew again.. Real nice machine!!

So today I put the Whiplash Gasser on a balance beam scale that I know to be fairly accurate and dry it was 10 lbs 4 oz. With a full 15 oz of fuel it was 11 lbs 3 oz. I thought that it was light so I put a known 8lb weight on it and the scale indeed said it was 8lbs so I believe the 11 lbs 3 oz to be an accurate flying weight with a low of 10lbs 8 oz.

My arm will verify that the Whiplash is several pounds lighter than my Heli Bug. I have to carry my helis up to the second floor.
