Try this:

point.0= 1.000, 27.500, 0.000, -10.800, 1181.000, 0.000, 0.800, 45.000, 0.400, 2.800, 0.850, 4.800, 4.800, 0.000, 0.000, 0.000
point.1= 1.000, -1.400, -7.000, -10.800, 1574.000, 1.000, 1.200, 0.000, 0.550, 2.300, 0.800, 4.500, 5.200, 2.000, 0.000, 0.000
point.2= 1.000, -1.400, 7.000, -10.800, 1574.000, 2.000, 1.200, 0.000, 0.550, 2.300, 0.800, 4.800, 4.900, 3.000, 0.000, 0.000

Then change static_cg_height to '11.000'

Let us know if it worked.
