No I don't think that is normal. Is this a new development with the latest beta? If so, try to be methodical about testing it. I would recommend checking fps with & without devices on X-Plane 11.11 at KSEA with the default C172. Then compare that to the beta. Send a bug report with the log & detailed info on your steps & results.
