Yeah I know... weight weight weight... Everybody is getting paranoid about it ....

May be Titanium is better in this one, you know how to make one in Ti, right?
I really do not remember the weight by heart, but there are ultralight versions in Aluminium. Almost 50% reduction in weight compared with the 'standard' versions. I am testing them and will keep doing it till the design is finalized. The sheet metal gets complex, but the reduction as a percentage makes it worth it.
Of course, if you go composite, the reduction is there, but the material is way too complex and unhealthy for my likes. Also more expensive. No?

(There is a version which is lighter than air, it will be almost indestructible and will be ready in the near future. We have solved most of the design issues we had with them. )
