There are both home grown versions and RTB (ready to buy) versions in use. They help reduce the coning angle formed by the main rotor blades due to the rotor head flexing. Some what helpful for forward flight but actually a little sacrifice of hovering stability results.

Hoverup, thanks for the advise/expertise, I did a little reaserch for developing my own head stiffners and this was the outcome. It works like a champ and it doesn't interfere wih the blades swinging movement, if coming in contact with objects.

Nice use of off-the-shelf pieces. Clever and functional. Even adjustable. Thanks for sharing.
