Here is my idea: Mark each wing root so the surgery will match. Plunge your soldering iron into the wing root (quickly-the hole continues to grow.)
Do this to make a hole around 1 1/2" deep, 3/8 diameter. then glue (Gorilla Glue) 3/8" dowels into each hole. Drill pilot holes lest you split the dowels, then screw a cuphook into each dowel. Stretch a small rubber band between the hooks when installing the wing.

If you can't put the dowels into the wing root, then insert them into the top of the wing with just a screw-head protruding, and stretch the rubber band across the top.
