    That means you're in ATTI mode. That'll happen when your Phantom does not have a connection to 6+ satellites or when manually put it in ATTI mode. Here's the blink pattern from the P3S Manual:

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.


    That is normal. I would suggest you go over this information throughly. It will help you to learn the operation of your new bird. - https://dl.djicdn.com/downloads/phantom_3_standard/en/Phantom_3_Standard_User_Manual__V1.4.pdf
    You definitely want to know as much about it before you get into the air and into trouble. ;)
