FSOV2 Towplane - Sailplane

I'm building a tow plane to do some aero towing and thought I'd try and model the tow plane in FSO to see if it had enough power to aerotow. I tried towing one of the Tracon gliders and also the 13 lb. Swift. I flew the tow plane and let the computer fly the glider. The computer did a poor job of flying the glider to the point that it wouldn't track behind the tow plane worth a darn and ended up dragging the towplane into an uncontrollable situation.

Any body had any experience with this? Is there anything to be done about it? I don't have a 2nd player setup nor anyone that could fly the glider in the simulation.

Thanks, diceco
