hi Kumar

How exactly did you run the tutorial? Because the answer is exactly in the step you didn't mention. ;)

Edit the Allrun script with a text editor and you'll see every step well documented.
And if you look into the folder "wingMotion", you'll see 3 sub-case folders.

Now I'll leave it up to you to connect the dots ;)

Best regards,
Bruno
