The first one, i don't think it will change. I have no scientific reasoning, just my opinion. The helicopter goes from being supported by the floor to being supported by the air in the room. When the air is supporting the helicopter the total weight inside the room should stay the same.

In the second one the weight will be less. When something burns you get ashes, smoke and heat. The weight of the smoke and ashes will not be near the weight of the unburned material. Heat has no weight, in fact it will try to rise and, in sufficient amounts, could lift the room.

The more I try to keep my Trike clean, the less I like Chrome.
