I've used Moore Crystal Clear for tape hinges on sailplane wings for years. First I attach the surface to the wing using the "Z" hinge method. Usually I double the "Z" in three places and try to have one set where the control horn is. Then I apply one linear strip of tape on the top and one on the bottom. This has proven to be durable and almost invisible. An added benefit is the surfaces are sealed.
