    • h: 4m (13.12ft)
    • d: 0.7m (2.3ft)
  • Animated This object contains animation.
  • LOD Range This object contains multiple Levels of Detail (LODs). To improve frame rate, simpler models are used at further distances. For more information, see the official documentation.: 0m to 1000m (0 miles to 0.62 miles)
  • Placement Locked at: in WED Scenery developers, when adding this object using WED version 2.1 or higher, the rotation will be locked at 0°. This is because this object is designed to rotate in the wind, and to align with the correct wind direction in X-Plane® the placement angle must be locked at this value. If you are using OverlayEditor or an older version of WED then please ensure you set the rotation to 0°.
