How do I arm APM?


In arducopter I am used that arming is done by moving the rudder stickk to the left for a few seconds.

I am using arduplane now on a delta wing, the rudder is not even connected... How do you arm it?

I didnt see it mentioned anywhere in the manual.

    You don't need to ARM the plane. Its ready from boot. Though there is a work add the concept of ARMing tho arduplane in upcoming release.
    • I think that the entire concept of ARMing should be the same as the Quads.

      I nearly got hit by the prop on my plane as I connected everything up including the external leds.

      This is really very important.

      Any idea how soon arming and Ext Leds will arrive?
