Bought an FC30 PRO controller a few days ago to use with my Raspberry Pi 3 (It's awesome by the way), but there's something that's bugging me.
Every time I plug the controller into a PC for Mode 5 (PI or my Desktop), it'll go into a "one blue blink per second" mode nonstop. It doesn't light up green as I would expect because it should be charging.

This is with the 1.7.1 firmware installed.

I agree. I want to use it with USB most of the time -- I might never use Bluetooth on a Mac. It obviously will never connect to bluetooth when plugged in by USB, so there's no need to know it isn't connected.

Please make it a solid color -- solid blue can mean connected by USB OR Bluetooth. Or a solid charging color. Anything other than flashing. Anything!

I post to show my support for this “solid blue light" when usb cable is connected.
AT time the blinking really hurt my eye, at some point I consider tape it.

I will also going to post it at the "Wanted features collection"

Different light status has different definition.

Such as:
“solid blue light" means  Bluetooth connection.
So the status of “solid blue light" can't be used elsewhere.

There is another way to turn off the light in condition of bluetooth connection.

L+R+PAIRING BUTTON(BACK BUTTON)

On Bluetooth connection, you can use Bluetooth channel or USB channel.

Not everyone uses Bluetooth -- I don't.  I bought this to plug it in only. The flashing makes me want to return it.

Really, any color, or no color. Anything other than flashing. A solid green light if it's shared, a charging light. Anything else than flashing! I don't even think anyone will be confused if it's solid blue and plugged in by USB -- it's connected.

Please don't make another complicated button configuration to do something simple like not flash constantly when the controller is being used in a normal way. Being plugged in is a normal way to use this controller. It's already very complicated to use -- we just don't want lights flashing, that's all we're asking.

In fact, different people have different needs.

For someone, he only needs USB connection, such as you,
for someone, he only needs Bluetooth connection,
for someone, he is playing in Bluetooth connection, but at the same time, he needs to charge the battery, and so on.

I suggest you first connect Bluetooth, and turn off the lights via pressing L+R+PAIRING BUTTON(BACK BUTTON), then plugin usb cable.

You can only use USB, regardless of Bluetooth connection.
