    hi all,

    I am new to xplane motion sim set up. I followed a tutorial for setting up xplane 11 and all seem to work fine except that my xplane screen would have a blue data display on the left (see picture). Would you know what this is used for and how to turn it off?

    Thank you for your help.

    I think it should be gone, if you make sure there are no ticks in the cockpit display column:
