Default How to stay a tanker in the same airspace during A2A refueling

After updating Ver2.5.6, A2A Refueling of AI aircraft group with 2 ships will eternal refueling in orbit, but it has been a success to refuel in the Box path.
In the latter case, however, it is necessary to create many waypoints on a Box path, because if I reuse a single box-path with mist.getRoute() or Controller.setTask(), refueling will be canceled when those functions are called.
Please let me know if there is any way I can keep a tanker in the same airspace without creating many waypoints.

You only need two way-points, way-point 1 and 2. Once you create WP2 go back to WP1 and add "Orbit" then select racetrack, be sure you set the speed and ALT high enough. The tanker will orbit between the two way points. I suggest making 1 & 2 at least 50 miles apart.
