i'd reckon that really thin carbon rod on the bottom would work a treat

i used it on my dlg as reinforcement - on the first fin anyway; 2 fins later and i have changed my arrangements

It could still be made removable if two loops were used set into small EPP doublers either side of the lower fuselage spine
I used the extra EPP with wheels also as a strengthener .. the lower spline was a bit bendy.. the EPP box spreads the load.. it weighs 1/2oz.. what would the wire weigh..

Ive used cable ties , working like skids, in a somewhat similar way
