I suppose we have all seen a photo or two of a model showing the rare earth magnets to attach the wing. Anyone have any tips on how to do this? Things like keeping everything aligned during construction or how to reduce the strength of the magnet so as to allow detachment in the event of a crash while holding things in place during flight.

Although my son wants to build his has a Lidberg TA-152with them, I'm looking at a couple of small models from 16 to 24 inch spans. Perhaps these are overkill?
