I'm using tape hinges too, and I also had concerns. So I did double sided tape (top and bottom), and then put another layer round the 'prop slot to cover the edge facing the "breeze". Worked fine and have had no problems.

Good luck, and put loads of expo (if you have it) till you get the feel. Watch out for the swept wing rolls . . . they are faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast.! ! ! !
