If you read and understand the SDK's, you need no help in programming.
The credits went to MSFS Aces Studio because they publish the SDK's.

Anyway, many thanks for the compliments!

Awsome video, really just made my day. The dancing heads (or whatever they're called) were one of my best parts.
Congrats to the creator.
