    So I had a thought yesterday while trying to ascertain weather or not my Home Point had been recorded by the
    Flashing Green to indicate it has. Well I couldn't see the lights in the bright sunlight with the bird on the ground, so I held the Phantom V2 in my hand and set it manually by flipping the switch a number of times until the green flashed a bunch of times. So I thought it would be a nice touch if DJI put a small round LED on the top of the bird, i.e., right over the lights so one could see if they have enough sats and also see if the home point is set? A small modification but I think would make a big difference in some of the issues people have. Worthy of pursuing?

    I did it by wiring to the red LED instead of the green LED for my GPS lock.
