    What color is the light?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Has it gotten wet recently?

    Blinking green means throttle trim issues.
    It would be a slow red if the batteries were dying.

    That very well could be the issue.
    Dry out the receiver... rice usually works pretty good overnight.
