One technique I have used on a variety of foamy planes is to replace the standard wing attachment hardware, usually consisting of metal screws into plastic or nylon fittings, with bigger nylon bolts into wood. I find a place to insert a soft wood (pine) crosspiece, drill a hole big enough to thread the bolt into, then "harden" the threads with CA. This retrofit is amazingly simple and easy to do. I have never had one fail.

Regards,

Jackson
