# Wing tip Strobes & nav lights

## Recommended Posts

Hi All

I watched one of my flights today in a Piper Seneca and the Nav & Strobe Lights I would say look to be about a foot or more above the wing tips. These are my settings and I have never touch them so I don't know how they got so far out of kilter. Does any one know how to fix it? Or maybe post their own settings maybe please.

LIGHTS]

//Types: 1=beacon, 2=strobe, 3=navigation, 4=cockpit, 5=landing

light.0 = 3, -5.15, -18.75, 2.14, fx_navredcarenpa34

light.1 = 3, -5.15, 18.75, 2.12, fx_navgrecarenpa34

light.2 = 10, -4.0, 0, 1.90, fx_vclightpa34

light.3 = 10, -8.25, 0, 1.80, fx_vclightpa342

light.4 = 2, -5.30, -18.75, 2.14, fx_strobecarenpa34

light.5 = 2, -5.30, 18.75, 2.12, fx_strobecarenpa34

light.6 = 8, -3.65, -16.10, 2.145, fx_icelight_pa34

light.7 = 2, -21.20, 0.05, 6.35, fx_beaconpa34

WHICH Piper Seneca? An add-on? A default (is there such a thing??) ?

Were the light 1 foot up only, or were they off left/right or fore/aft also? Or any combination of these displacements?

The quick, dirty answer is just lower the FOURTH set of numbers after the equals sign per line.

for example:

light.4 = 2, -5.30, -18.75, 2.14, fx_strobecarenpa34

The bold, red numbers. About a foot high? DECREASE the number by 1.00, so that it's 1.14. If that's too much, then use, say, 0.75. or 0.50. or whatever required to put them exactly where you want. Vertically.

For for/aft, change the second set after the equals sign. for left/right (inboard/outboard), the third set. See a pattern here?

Hope that helps a little bit...

Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

Before you go changing a bunch of stuff in the aircraft.cfg, where were you when you noticed this?

Were you closer to one of the poles than you were to the Equator?

Disregard that post, I thought I was still in the FSX forum.

Pat's post will get you headed in the right direction.

Thanx Bean! I thought I had messed up again. Good to know I got it right!
