+1 on the Nanotech 160's for the Champ. It really doesn't need better batteries.

When i put tail surfaces on, I don't use CA, which dries hard & Brittle, but instead use a good foam glue like UHU por that remain flexible.

I also reinforce the areas where the tail wheel, control horns mount and the strip of foam that connects the elevator halves together with clear, Blisterpack plastic. This doesn't add much weight, but really ups the strength.

And I for the lower hinge on the rudder, I slot in a piece of Floppy disk, to replace the foam hinge.

Doing this makes the control surfaces much stronger than stock.
