I've had no problems with the x-mount to the disc it's the disc to foam that I have always had a problem with. And it's not that the disc comes loose from the foam...it takes the foam that it's glued to with it. The pic with the balsa triangle stock is from a previous Yak that I had with the same problem.

I added some triangle pieces of foam to my current Yak but it didn't help either as you can see from the pics. Maybe I'm just hitting the ground harder than I think :o.

Ray your FFF Yak's look great BTW. The extra foam you added covers more area than the pieces I added and I will try it out before I retire this one but I think I will end up with a piece of 3/8th stick like I use on my combat planes on my next one.
