Your vid's not appearing for me, Grotey. But I think I can guess what it's about... using wire parameters to connect the light's multiplier to a noise float (or whatever it's called) and controlling it in the curve editor. Am I close?

[edit] It's now working for me. Maybe the bing player was still loading it up.

A light on a plane doesnt flicker it flashes in regular intervals so noise float wont suit this situation

@ Grotey, Ooooh a plane, as in aeroplane. And there I was thinking, "Why the hell would you want a flashing light on a plane specifically? I mean, why not say ground, or wall?"
