I would like to set up two R500 without all controller which are the smartzone or uunleashed etc. It would use the static IP and don't provide the DHCP of AP. The AP will connect to router and get the DHCP.
May i know it is possible?

I just want to use the R500 in stand alone thus Dreytek router to provide the DHCP.
The controller may not be implement in this topology.

Times two (2) R500s even!  Let APs get DHCP from your router. 
Find their IP address in the DHCP lease table.  Login to APs and
configure identical WLAN/SSIDs on each, clients will pull DHCP
from your router as their def-gw too.

Just use 2x R510 unleashed. You don't need a controller. One will become the master and the secondary the slave. You only need to configure the master and the config will replicate. In addition using the latest firmware allows for a faster failover in case of a failure

If we don't use the unleashed, it is possible?
Just setting up the static IP only of AP thus router pull the DHCP to Wi-Fi network.
