Setting Geofence in Arduplane

Hi allIs it possible in Arduplane to set the Geofence as it is set in Arducopter so it can be used as a safety feature, to protect against loss of orientation etc as set as always on like it can in copter.All I can find is a bizzar option where it has to be set prior to each flight and only with mission planner connected.  Sometimes I don't fly missions so don't take my laptop.Can it be set to always be on and always offer the same height and distance protection as it does in copter.ThanksPaulSee More
