    DJI is starting to annoy me slowly.

    Today i had no signal issue. After a minute of turning on everything.
    Then it told me that update is required. I updated, and update went up to 105% progress. (ridiculous)

    The problem is:

    Remote doesnt connect to Phantom. It doesnt see it in the APP.
    The moment i turn on remote, it starts beeping red and does nothing.
    in the update field it says FPGA error, Hardware mulfuncion contact customer service for repair.

    WHAT THE HECK IS wrong with this people. I flew perfectly fine 3 days ago.

    FPGA error could be a serious hardware error, let's cross fingers that it was not a logical error that incorrectly showed fpga error.

    I can visualize the problem. One DJI Go is designed for multiple drones, one RC is expected to work with different drones and different versions, common APIs are needed....so many devices are in the field..solution is becoming complex day by day.

    Downgrade your remote controller firmware like this. Then, follow these instructions to upgrade your firmware. It's important to install the Phantom firmware before the remote controller firmware.
