Default Best GLUE for foam wings?

What would be the best glue to use to make repairs and add items to foam wings (like the slo-v)?
Preferably, I would like something with high initial tack...and something that doesn't eat the wing. :-)

Thanks
Rob

gorilla glue works really well, but doesnt really fit the high initial tack. There is always 5 minute epoxy.

I'm with Jeff. Epoxy is perfect with foam.

epoxy works best but it's expensive and doesn't give any more strength than hot glue...The heat from the glue partially melts the foam
a problem for high visibility areas but that effect also makes the bond permanent. My hot glued pico tiger moth is quite solid.. It flies great
