set arming require to 0, this means the ArduCopter will boot into a armed state

yep

Connect in mission planner -> configuration -> full parameter list -> find ARMING_REQUIRE -> set to 0 -> write parameter

You don’t need to arm the vehicle to get all of the telemetry data you are
after. You will probably want to set LOG_DISARMED=1 so you get onboard
dataflash logs for later analysis / creation of pretty pictures.
