Default Removable tanks

I am assembling an ARF that has drop tanks. They are designed to be glued in place. I would like to make them removable. Your suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you

You may try rare-earth magnets on both wing and tanks. Make sure enough rod is left to seat into wing and tank holes to stabilize placement.
