Best way for addressable LED's?

I want to create a really colorfull, flashing RC drone using the Syma X5 frame.

What is the controller to go for adressable/programmable LED's when more options for the LED's are required than possible with cleanflight/betaflight?

For example to programm different sequenzes controlled via Tx.

Because it is a drone, the solution should be as light as possible!

Thanks in advance!

Arduino mini or nano. Write your own programs or use the Fast LED library in Arduino.

I used 2812 LEDs which run off 5v.

Ws2812 and esp32 probably, making use of the esp32 WiFi and a phone to control remotely
