Default Replacing Damaged wings.

Just crashed my EDF Jet and the wings need to be replaced. I can buy spare parts without a problem but what is the best way to remove the old wings. They are glued on with Epoxy. Otherwise I will have to cut the new replacement wings where I cut the old wings off so they match. Any tips would be helpful.

Some Photos of your plane or at least a description of the make and model would be helpful for someone to help you. I would imagine that there is a spar running through the wing that gives the wing support and in some cases helps attach it to the fuselage. You can't just saw the old wings off and stick new ones on. The glue joints would never handle the G load when you pull up out of a dive. You don't say if the plane is built from a kit, is an ARF or an RTF. Is it foam or balsa? Depending on what type of plane it is, the spar may be included with the wings.
