Your AP-manager and management interfaces is mapped to port 1:
ap-manager                       1    80       10.41.80.2      Static  Yes    No
only APs connected to port 1 will work.
You need to either use a switch and keep port 1 connected to it while APs join through the switch or you need to create a new ap-manager interface. not even sure if you can map it to the same port or different port! not even sure about the management interface!! it is mapped to port 1 and should be reachable anyway. it is a mess!!! have you read the best practice document that I put the link for earlier?
So you need eventually a switch to fix your issue. direclty connected APs are not recommended.
I am still not knowing how Cisco provided such swtich that is supposed to handle direclty connected Aps while it does not provide a smooth way to do so.
Use a switch and everything supposed to be fine.
