The APs need to be initially configured to the ZD via a cabled connection. Did that happen already ? The R510s will need to be added to the ZD where they will change their firmware to the corresponding ZD one and only once fully online in the controller you can remove the wired uplink and thy will form the mesh. Did that happen already?

It should work.  If you saw all your APs on the ZD's Monitor/Access Points page, and Mesh is enabled on the ZD Configure/Mesh page,then if you disconnect an Eth cable from your AP, and have a power supply (even connect to a PoE switch that isn't connected to your LAN),then that AP should connect to the closest wired AP (Root), as a Mesh AP.

How are you powering your AP once you disconnect the Ethernet?  Do you see all the LEDs light up/flash ok?

Oto the proper ZD firmware. It will no longer be unleashed. Yo)ou need to adopt it onto ZD by connecting to a switch where they can reach the controller. Accept them, let them upgrade the firmware and once they are fully online and managed by ZD you can disconnect them from the switch and power them up with a power supply.

You can't just take a new AP out of the box and have it join a mesh network without first passing through the wired step(*)

*) In SZ 5.1 or later I believe and with APs coming from the factory image 110 they can join a mesh out of the box but not with your current version.
