Question Advice For Hinge Tape

Hey guys, so I have an old school F27C Stryker and the elevons seem to be wearing down by the hinges. I'm afraid to take her up the the air because of the tear potential mid-flight. Do you guys have any suggestions for some very durable hinge tape/remedy? Your help is greatly apprecaited.

Any place online I can purchase or a local Ace will carry them?

Yep, I use the clear 'rubbery' medical tape. Works well and seems to stick very well. Not the paper tape.
