IF you are seeking barebones kit weight, then the RAD30 V2 is (was?) the lightest as per Carey.

Of course, equipment used will dictate the final number.

Whiplash is currently around 13.2 dry. BUt its a pig - Ive got the heavy hatori muffler on it, a bunch of telemetry sensors, jewel generator/ 1100 A123 setup and full LED flying lights.

The Helix is about 12.7 with a Century v2, jewel generator and a big 2300 A123 pack.

checked my G20 modded... used a cheap scale... came it at 11.3 to 11.5... with a full tank and lipo ready to fly. (its stretched to 700 and runs 696mm mains)

but it has a heavy duty lower frame, G30 clutch, pullstart...extra TT bearing... if I maybe did some things to lighten it up, I think I could get to 10.75?

problem I have is that I'm now using 115mm tails, and in the grass the tail fin digs in and allows the tips of the blades to mow the lawn and dig dirt. I think I need to add a spacer to the rear skid mount to tilt it forward or cut a new tail fin thats longer and hopefully save my tail blades.

My Whiplash
12.6x lbs with the generator but dry, I always weigh them dry anyways. Century V2 muffler saves several oz's over Jeremy's hatori plus I don't have the navigation lights kit on mine though I do have a headlight and taillight (which Jeremy has as well).
