Then thinking about it, the cheaper smaller brass bolts failing may be the best option when something has to give. At least for those with floating foils.

Are you talking about NP ? There are no M6 Bolts in a NP mast or wing attachments and the bolts are Titanium plated Stainless not brass.

No, maybe I was going off topic, sorry about that.

I was just speaking in general about possible ways to avoid damage to equipment when forces get to breaking point.

If we were to replace good strong mounting bolts, with smaller weaker bolts, they would fail instead of the mast bending or... Kind of like a fuse in a electrical circuit.
