To use the CH53 you remove the tail fin and landing gear so that removes 2 grams. They both fly well but of course times do some.
If you don't mind doing some careful crafting on your own, you can build a 1.36 gram Huey body
for the MCX for free -- not quite as shiny and finished looking, but still not bad and it's lighter than the original MCX body.
Here's my thread on that: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=976843
