You still need a separate pitch control surface of course. I'm more an idea guy than engineer, so take this with salt.
YEA -- both the Exxtacy , and Atos, use weight-shift, for pitch control ;
however
The Exxtacy glider, is getting a 30Hp engine, with a folding prop, and the
weight-shift is going Bye Bye . I might put something like this , (below) for
pitch ; and now i have a rudder as well, if i want. There is enough dihedral
in the wing , that a rudder would slowly turn it , when coupled with a bit
of pitch , (back-Up for a spoiler malfunction). I also got a place to hide
most of the pilot , as well , (Me).
