I am building one now for a guy in Michigan......Reallistically I think you can get it down to 18 to 19 pounds. Depending on the type of flying, either the 50 or 60. The 60 is a bit heavy but has more power.

If built without trying to lighten it, then 20 pounds is in the ballpark, but try not to get too much over that. If you wanted to go all out on the lightening, 18 pounds would be achievable.
