You just say that cause you couldn't get the real XR/FPV colour.
:lol:

Matt has the real colour LEDs. I've changed the window switches from the stock white, to the matching XR/FPV blue. They looked out of place when everything else came factory blue.

Note, changing the LEDs requires desoldering/soldering SMD LEDs, they're tine little things, and if you're not an adapt hand at soldering you'll easily destroy the circuit boards. Get someone who knows what they're doing to do it, if you can't.
