Default Warped foam/Depron

I bought an Ultrafly Ultimate.The rudder and fin are not flat.I tried to take out the warp overnight with some weight,no results.Any tricks on how to straighten this piece?

Also try heat. Hot air or hot water. I use heat to bend depron all the time, so you could use it to straighten out the depron just as easily.
Try the hot water first, soak the depron in it for a couple of minutes, then clamp it straight.

Thanks guys!
The packing tape will probably work
I tried heat to no avail,hot water is something I havent tried.The piece I was referring to was the fin and rudder.Once I cut the two apart and hinged and applied decals,they came out reasonably straight.
