How to secure landing gear?

Hi,
My rc's landing gear is always flopping forward and backwards. Is there any way to avoid that? Also is there any alternatives to the rear gear? This is my first shot at a foamie so if there are any other suggestions for my plane please tell me. If you need more pics just tell me i will get them.
Thank you in advance,
Jero

Make a u bend about 1 inch where the gear meet the fuse. It uses more wire, but will help stabilize. Also you can glue the gear to an old gift card to help keep it from breaking through the foam

Thank you all. Those ideas worked out perfectly and now my gear is stable. One more question: What size prop should i use for that plane? My current prop is too big because it touches the ground.
Thanks
