A combination of both.
Broadside battlesuits can be modelled on a clear pin, as if they are hovering above the ground, or you can just place them down on the ground as if they have just landed and are standing around. Which of these do you think looks best? How have you got most of your army modelled?
A Tau Ethereal was thought to have been killed today by a Bloodthirster. However, many Tau were seen fleeing the scene and are considered suspects.
With the exception of my first few suits all of mine are standing. And have a slightly chopped down flying stand in there as well to give more support to the easly broken ankle joints.
All of my early suits are standing, and in a pretty standard pose at that. I got them right when I got into the hobby, and my skills were pretty low.
However, the last two I bought, a couple years later, are both flying.
My new commander suit is actually flying, Superman style. His right arm is out stretched to hold a weapon, the left arm is bent (and typically holds a shield generator), then the second weapon is shoulder mounted.
Half Gods are worshiped with Wine and Flowers. Real Gods are worshiped in Blood.
Blood for the Blood God! Beer for the Bronze Keg!
I've gone for a combination. I think I modelled one so that it looked as though it was about to land, another one that looks as though it's either about to leap into the air or has just landed and is beginning to run forward... yeah, pretty much a combination.
I only have 1 battlesuit, my commander, since I am for mobility, But if I had more battlesuits, I would make them fly to remind me that they can.
The Fire Warrior wanted to know what colours our Imperial Toaster Oven would come in?
I had a few XV8 models posed as if hovering; however they are back on their legs, why? Because of the new more generous LOS rules in 5th. Having an extra half inch of height on a model can be really dangerous, especially on a model that is already on the largish size like the XV8. This is worth remembering if you are a competitive player; however if you want a nicely posed model and you are not to bothered about the game play then go for the flying as it can make for some dynamic models.
I sort of have a mix of both. The only models that are hovering are my two HQ suits, so it was a bit easier to distinguish them. But then I just painted them different colours so it sort of defeated the purpose lol.

All my models have (excessively over-large) cork bases so my one suit (commander) is in the process of taking off, with one of the feet still touching a rocky outcrop. I'm so going to die in 5th, but I don't care.
As a side note, do you mean Broadsides or normal Battlesuits.. Ruleswise and fluffwise, I don't think the broadsides can fly. The railguns take up too much weight and power, I guess.
