I think those are called stabilizers.
The Knight of Gold, the LED Mirage B4, Engage Octaver SR1, Bang Doll and other Mortar Headds have them.

You know, I always thought of them as ribbons for decorative purposes. Now that LaughingMan brought up the stabilizers, I can agree that may be a possibility.

Yep. They're stabilizers. Meant to help balance the MH during high-speed maneuvering like the tails of great cats and other fast mammals.

In fact is specifically points this out in the Internal Structure of MH article in Smoke Walls, specifically on the MH Phantom...
