How can I achieve slingshotting action around fixed points like satellites do in space? I can't find any examples using chipmunk physics to do this. Thanks.

I imagine you could do this using simple Newtonian physics. Take the basic F=ma and the like and add in Newtonian gravity.

Dunno if you are the same one that posted on the official Chipmunk forums, but one of the demos included with Chipmunk shows how to do planetary gravity.
