Mini2 LED toggle- willing to pay somebody for some (any) version of this feature.

I really need some way to toggle this LED. Change the color, turn it on/off. Anything, really. If using the DJI Fly app, this is a menu where you can see a list of colors you can choose. There is also a setting for OFF. Any of these would be great for me, and preferrably they could be assigned to a button like C1/C2. (although including it on a mission plan would be nice too)
I don’t know if this is possible/accessible with the SDK, but previous versions for Phantom/Inspire seem to contain this function so I would think it could happen with the Mini 2 as well.
If this isn’t an option or there is no path to the finish line via Litchi, I would be interested in hiring somebody on a consultancy freelance site (like Upwork). If that were the plan, how do I even describe this job? Can someone supply some useful keywords that relate to the SDK?

I’ve got a Mavic Air 2 that I’d love to be able to toggle the rear LED to turn red instead of green, and make the rear LED’s flash/strobe like a regular aircraft does. Surely with the right firmware hack/update it should be possible.

People don’t realize what a big deal this is- being able to control that LED in flight opens up an unlimited assortment of features, it’s not just “look, now I have a red led instead of blue! whee!”
It’s frustrating that this is overlooked and it seems like it ought to be incredibly easy to include in software. I hate to have to learn programming/SDK just for this tiny detail but that might be the only way.

You should be able to turn on/off the front leds already with Mini 2 in Litchi using the custom function Front Aircraft LEDs : Switches the aircraft’s front LEDs on or off.

Changing color unfortunately do not think it is possible with the DJI SDK

On/Off would be 90% of what I need. Maybe I overlooked that before or it was recently added? My hope is that you could assign that to a (any) dedicated button on the Tx so that you could use it without having to navigate thru menus and leave your video feed up.
If this exists now, I must have overlooked it so thanks very much for the heads up!

Front LEDs On/off via custom button has always been in Litchi

Ok, I think the problem here is my assumption that this would be configurable under the “KEYS” tab. Opening that tab reveals options for C1 & C2 buttons, none of which exist on my controller (for the mini 2 this is the RC-N1). Or, if they do exist, they aren’t labeled as such from the DJI documents I have. I will try to sort this out in the hopes of working it out but in the meantime if I have confused some part of this please do let me know!

For the Mini 2/Mavic Air 2/Air 2S: single tap on Fn button for C1, double tap on Fn button for C2. Long press is not supported.

Awesome! Thanks so much, my M2 is broken right now but it works enough to test this out and I see that I can in fact toggle it on/off now (though only on the bench). This detail will make my life a whole lot easier, I wish I’d come across it earlier but its much better late than never!
