Since updating to P3Dv4.2 I have observed that after a few minutes of flight my airspeed indicator gauge stops working...and the needles go back to static idle position.
Is this a known issue ? Thanks for any help

Welcome to the forums haffende.

This sounds like pitot tube icing and perhaps the upgrade to P3D v4.2 is just a coincidence. Have you tried switching on pitot heat? (And also checking that the pitot heater is working during the pre-flight inspection?)

Also, are you using any third-party weather programs?

Thanks,
Nick

I'd be with Nick here as it sounds like pitot heat is needed.

cheers,
Lewis
