Gee, with all the physics calculations in the program I thought maybe the sailplane would sense the pull of the tow line and allow itself to be towed behind the tow plane while keeping it's wings level. Isn't that the way it works in the actual models? All it would take is a nominal neutral pitch trim setting, and pitch attitude, as well as yaw and therefor lateral direction, would be primarily determined by the angle and force of the towline? To the layman the programming of that doesn't sound so difficult, but I'm not a programmer!
