PZ Ultra-Micro Spitfire Aileron Hinges

I just picked up a Parkzone Ultra-Micro Spitfire. I noticed a few of the attached foam aileron hinges arent attached. There is tape on the underside of the aileron but Im curious if I should return it or if that thin foam hing eventually tears anyways.

If so, should I put a small tab of tape on the topside of the hinge as well as the bottom?

The AS3X can work the foam and tape hinges pretty good and the duty cycles eventually will cause them to fail.

I replace the tape with 3.5" floppy disk mylar strips, slotted into the foam and held in place with UHU por. It takes a little longer than tape, but is much more solid and you never have to worry about it again.
