What is best way to replace wing on HZ Champ


Got a new Champ and first flight in gym got hit by another larger plane and it chopped wing off right at fuselage. Got a new wing today. What is the best way to get old wing off and put attach new wing. Looks like it is glued on and I may have to cut it off. Just in cast this happens again what is best way to attach the new one.

I am considering fine loop self adhesive velcro strips.

Ideas????

Picked up a new wing last night at LHS, double sided tape at Walmart and had it fixed in about 5 minutes.

Was looking at the magnet wing mod kit and they used lighter fluid, aka naptha to soak the tape off. Looks like it did a good job.
