Mapping LEDs to Controls  

We can easily map the "Head LEDs" to one of the customization buttons. These two buttons are located on the bottom of the controller.

First we'll connect our mobile device to the controller and then tap on the three dots on the upper right side of the screen.

We can edit the custom controls for the C1 and C2 button by tapping to the third icon shaped like a remote controller. Tap on one of the buttons and a drop down menu will show us all of the available options we can map.
