Power up before ESC connected and no stable mode indication

Hey! Using APM and ardupirates 527....

 

I have migrated over from AQ, so this is all a little new to me, however i kinda like to thin I know my way around better than someone completely new to this....

 

I have to power the APM for a few seconds before connecting the ESC's otherwise they will not detect an input and disable themselves...also i cannot seem to get the stable mode indicator to stay solid to show stable mode...it only flashes...

 

Any suggestions?

So i fixed this, plugging my bec into the receiver rather than the APM solve the issue of the ESC's not detecting an input?!?

 

I can fly in stable mode, however i cannot see which LED indicator shows this mode?  I have one solid green light A and one flashing amber light B...

 

Which one shows stable mode?

slow flashing green is stable mode, solid green is motors disarmed

yellow indicates acro mode afaik
