Foam tail feathers modifications?

I have foam tail feathers on my new predator with about 5 flights on it. Turns Left great. Turns right barely. I have moved in the control wire on the rudder horn. Left rudder is fantastic right still weak. Both vert stab/rudder are on piece foam with a crease down the middle and pretty stiff (same with horiz stab/elev). Will installing a real hinge work any better? Any recommendations for a better hinge? What glue sticks to this meat tray type foam? Any other ideas to get better control?
