I would not recommend drooping the ailerons. Doing so does/can impose asymetrical loads on the control cables and parts.

In the event of a maximum control deflection at maximum structural cruise the system could either fail or become damaged due to the excessive loads.

If you droop the ailerons the cables and parts are already under more load than they are designed for at normal cruise and reduces the margin of safety that is built into the system.
