you need to make a measurement from your reference Datum position. You need 3 measurements from this point:Longitudinal Distance +/-Latitudinal Distance +/-Vertical Distance +/-Once you have these measurements, input them into the aircraft.cfg file and reference an FX file.Take a look at some of the default aircraft's aircraft.cfg file. Look for the {LIGHTS} section and follow their examples and use your own measurements.Vinhttp://www.vinscimone.com/dancnkid.gif
