    update firmware today on the RC, must not have took because it wont come to life all it does is blink red light and chime at me. DJI GO app says FPGA error, Hardware Malfunction, contact support. Anyone have any fix for this besides calling DJI? Really don't want to have to ship the RC to them if i don't have to. I tried updating the firmware off of an sd card this time but it wont take it either. At least threw the app it said it had installed to 100 percent.

    FPGA = Field Programmable Gate Array. Its actually an Integrated Circuit (IC) somewhere on the Drone's circuit board. Upon power up, and FPGA loads code and configures itself to represent the digital hardware (registers, counters, counters, gates, etc) that the hardware engineer programmed. Sounds like the FPGA isn't configuring properly. Unfortunately you cannot fix the code...
