Default Hinge tape....

I'm using hinge tape on my EVA. How much of a gap should I have between the control surfaces? I laid the horz. stab and elevator flat on my table and carefully put the tape across the hinge line leaving about 1/16th of an inch gap. The elevator would not deflect down much. Am I going about this wrong? I haven't put any tape on the bottom side yet. I did bevel the trailing edge of the horz. stab.

What was I thinking?
