Record light

Does anyone know if there’s a way to turn off the record light on the front of the camera while still recording? If your shooting through a window that lights reflection gets recorded in your video. Example: While vacationing in Las Vegas we went on a night time helicopter tour. The whole time I was shooting video through the helicopters side window you could see that annoying red lights reflection blinking in the video. ????

@copfitter, with your HERO6 Black camera powered on, swipe down, then tap Preferences. Under Preferences, scroll down to "General" section and tap on LED. You can set which status lights blink -- options are All On (default), All Off, and Front Off.
