UAV Aerotowing?

So ever since I started hang gliding, I began wondering how UAV's could be used for aerotowing. Lo and behold...

... somebody did just that!

The flight looks marvelous. The video was a lot of fun to watch. However, there remain some safety concerns...

1. What type of protection is there for the pilot in the event of the various types of mishaps that can cause the pilot to come in contact with the propellers?
2. Where is the prop exhaust?

Nonetheless, this video proves that it can be done. With more design improvements, this could be a new era for aerotowing in hang gliding?
