I'm not sure what 'double-mount' means. Can you clarify that please?
Yes, we're pretty sure now that you can't voluntarily turn off your flying ability off-turn, so you need some other way (an exploit) to get to ground off-turn. Upgrading a unit to heavy is one way, the dwagon can't support that weight and both sink to the ground (although we're still not sure if the units take damage or not). I'll refer to this situation as an "overloaded mount." Harvesting is apparently the other way of getting to the ground. Or just jumping off your mount, although that would leave the mount stuck in airspace.
Double-mounting refers to other places in the comics where we've seen two people riding one mount. So some have asked why not have the hobgobwins double-mount with Wanda, or Jack, etc., and then upgrade the hobgobwin to heavy. My hypothesis is that that won't work. Other alternatives are that it wouldn't help (everyone takes the same falling damage) or that Parson made a mistake in planning or Wanda made a mistake in execution.
