As you asked me...
I made a slit by sharp knife in foam parts.
Then applied good amount of 5 min epoxy on one half of hinge.
Put it inside the slit and made several back and force movement to distribute glue inside and keep the hinge inside with more or less proper position in line.
Quickly made the same with others. Glued another half of all of them and put in slits on another part of foam. Lets say elevator.

Despite that it's 5 min epoxy I let them cure 2 days.

I found that there is some chemical reaction when glued magnets. Glue was "boiling" for several hours and produced a lot of air bubbles. Magnets swimmed in wholes I made for them about one day.

In 2 days I can grab whole plane just by elevator or rudder.
