Default tape for hinges

What tape should I use on my umx sbach for the airelon. It got ripped off. I heard you need a stretchy tape like blenderm.

DU-BRO hinge tape pricey but works great. My XP has good old scotch tape on it.

Does the scotch tape stretch enough

I'd go with blenderm if I were you. Once it's stuck and let set overnight, it won't come off even in a bad crash. Works nice for all kinds of foam. And one roll will last a long time and doesn't cost much.

I've had good results with just some HD Clear packing tape. It has a picture of a duck on the roll/package. I have some hinges that have been holding up for over a year; and that's on my Power 10 P-51BL that I fly as if it were stolen! LOL!
