orienting particle effects

I would like to make a burst, where a particles radiate out from the center of the emitter and are oriented outward. For instance, I would like to have a burst of arrows where all of arrows point away from the center. I can't seem to figure out how to do this. Does anyone know?

I built an Arrow using the drawing tools. Then made it a group.

Then when I grouped them, I made them particles. All the arrows faced up.

I then put the Behavior>simulation>align to motion.

I changed the Rotation axis to Z and then the Axis to Y.

That seemed to do it for me.
