Hi, I'm planning on doing a HALO from a C-130 airplane

Basically, I need to make it a "Static" object, so I can then place my unit in side of it, open the door, and halo from it.
How would I go about this?

I did try searching "Static units" on search/nothing irrelevant came up tho.

Added 25 minutes later:

NOTE: I know how to open the doors/do the halo, it's just making the plane a static unit I need help with.

It's harder than it looks, and I ended up avoiding it altogether - no offense but if you have to ask, I'd request a script that does it for you.
There are various posts on the subject here at armaholic, with links to a youtube video demonstration.
Vary your searches. not sure how 'Static Units' would have got you anywhere near - your thinking is too linear

....that's all folks....!

Hi, yeah I'm actually following a youtube video right now, it says I need a Static C130. I guess I should not be so...Blunt with my choice of words -

I just typed into google Static C-130 so I'll see what comes up there.

Oh, and no offense taken XD

Hi, sorry to bother you again, after checking google/this site: There doesn't seem to be a static C-130. How would I make it static?
