Is it possible to arm without GPS installed?

nice to meet you.
I have one question for you.
We tried to build a ship using only the remote controller, but the remote controller does not have blend control so we will use Pixhawk.
We will be using the Radio link mini Pix.
But we will be using Pixhawak for simple mixed control, not using GPS such as automatic navigation, do we need to install GPS?

I think what you are looking for is ARMING_CHECK. Also take a look at other ARMING_* parameters.

Yes, of course you can. Just disable GPS with ARMING_CHECK parameter on the Mission Planner and you are good to go

Thank you for answer. Is arming possible without GPS connected to pixhawk hardware?

Yes. You can use the vehicle in non-gps modes by this way.

Is the non-gps mode a manual mode?

Yes, for example… Consult wiki pages for rover modes.

Thanks for the reply.
Thanks to you, I was able to complete the products I had to make (8 pieces).
