This is a common problem in FS with a number of add-ons.If you experience severe (level 5) icing in MSFS, it will freeze your pitot tube, resulting in a zero-airspeed excursion, regardless of pitot heat setting. The PSS panel does, in fact, activate the pitot heat internal to FS. In FSUIPC, you should deselect random icing in clouds, restrict max icing to level 3, and select the "allow FSUIPC to interfere with FS own weather" options. That has worked well for me.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-V L-300Washington, DC
