How to have the Status Tab available automatically?

I’m using Mission Planner 1.3.44, ArduCopter 3.4.5, and Windows 10.

Whenever I bring up Mission Planner (MPL) for the first time, there is no status tab. It appears only after I activate the joystick. When I turn off the joystick to go to regular RC control, the status tab remains available.

Is there a way to bring up the status tab without having the toggle the joystick?


right click any of the tabs and pick customize.and tick status

Got it. Thanks Michael. Thank you also for such a comprehensive and fun software system. Be well. Paul
