I noticed the missing rudder control rod too.

Personally I doubt it's possible to drop the weight from 15g to 9.5g mostly with a lighter motor and battery. I'm not sure the rest of the weight reduction can come from the airframe. But, you never it might be possible. However, I suspect it's a combination of lighter motor/gearbox/prop/battery + lighter airframe + brick lighter than 3.3g in the original Vapor. How much lighter? Only a bit. One way would be to go to servo motors smaller than 4mm diameter.
