How can I  turn OFF the Spark's front LEDs from its remote control customizable button? I looked at the menu for the customizable button and did not see this option listed. This option is available on Phanton 3/4 and Mavic.

I hope that DJI is monitoring this blog. This option MUST be available on the Spark as it is available on all DJI drones. It looks like the programmers at DJI forgot to include it.

DJI, Please activate the option to turn OFF the front LEDs on the Spark from the remote control customizable button.

I would like to see this option too. The “Front LEDs Auto Turn off” is missing on Sparks. This would be really useful.

They turn off automatically when you push the record button.

That's exactly my point and what makes me wonder what more is requested above and why.

Not possible, but I don’t think they have any effect on your photography, unlike the much bigger ones on the phantoms.

Actually I have never paid attention to them when taking photos, but I could imagine that like in video they automatically switch off, especially for the panos. To be monitored at the next opportunity.

To avoid having unwanted light in the pictures.

But I havent realized that they are getting off automatically when taking a picture. :-(

I have just tested it, they do also switch off automatically when you take a picture, not only in video mode. Thus all is well.

The lights turn off automatically when shooting video or picture down. I noticed this when was flying the spark at night and saw lights were off. Found out that I was shooting video on a down angle. As soon as I bring the angle up again the lights light up.

Never mind, it was a pleasure. I love testing, since each time I learn more about my Spark :-)
