    I just recvd my new phantom 3a and have the controller plugged in and all I am getting is a white flashing light on the 2nd led. Is this correct?

    That means it's about 25% charged. The 3rd light will start blinking next. It'll most likely take ~3 hours to charge.

    I would highly recommend that you down and read completely through the owners manual prior to flying. This is the minimum that should be done prior to flying.
