[Lab] glider ballast

This glider project has come together really well

It's using a curly piece of paper for ballast. It works well and when
curled down the center of gravity of the plane is low which is cool.

On the down side, you need tape to attach it. How else to do that? I
thought of having a slot or something in the plane but the foam is so soft
and flexible... glue is a hassle and will change it's weight as it cures...

Just a little thought exercise. Any ideas?

I may have just answered my own question.. perhaps double sided tape in
kits will work better since it will keep and can be segmented...
