We consider the following nonlinear Schrödinger-Poisson system
 $\left\{\begin{array}{lll} -\Delta u+u+\lambda\phi(x) u = f(u)&\quad &x\in \mathbb{R}^3, \\ -\Delta \phi = u^2, \ \lim\limits_{|x|\to\infty} \phi(x) = 0&\quad &x\in \mathbb{R}^3, \end{array}\right.$
where
 $\lambda>0$
and
 $f$
is continuous. By combining delicate analysis and the method of invariant subsets of descending flow, we prove the existence and asymptotic behavior of infinitely many radial sign-changing solutions for odd
 $f$
. The nonlinearity covers the case of pure power-type nonlinearity
 $f(u) = |u|^{p-2}u$
with the less studied situation
 $p\in(3, 4).$
This result extends and complements the ones in [Z. Liu, Z. Q. Wang, and J. Zhang, Ann. Mat. Pura Appl., 2016] from the coercive potential case to the constant potential case.
