The V-groove where the towline loop will go is then machined/filed out. The rod is just a bike spoke connected to the servo on the far side of the fuselage. There is local strengthening, to ensure the tow forces are carried into the structure - obviously the force can be quite high if the towline snatches.
Thanks Simon
