YES WaspAir ...ALL the rotors atop gyros in my hangar are supported on nice tip-stands ...when I plan to not fly the next day! A week or a month parked ...they all get supported! (Even my Dragon wings on the Butterfly!)It is common for older technology rotor blades with wood components to take a "set" if left drooping unsupported for too long, and fly accordingly for a while. For those blades, the best way to cope with that annoyance is to put a stand under each tip to support the weight while sitting in the hangar and going through temp and humidity changes. Being supported at both the hub and the tip makes a big difference. I wonder if that might positively affect the behavior you see.
I believe the majority of TAG owner's have found this a beneficial practice! Certainly most of the ones in USA do this!
