My elevons broke free too but only after a good long time and plenty of crashes. I just taped them all the way across with Blenderm and then added 3 or 4 strips running front to rear per side. These front to rear hinges are one inch in width.

A friend makes hinges on his EPP planes by using Welder glue. He learned this method when he built a 3D Hobbies foamie. Suggest you check their web site. It may not sound like it would work but he's been flying that plane for 2 seasons now and they are perfect. They look good too because you hardly notice them.
