Looking for a Pietenpol home built?

Myself and 3 other guys are in the process of building 4 Pietenpol home built airplanes. I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a Pietenpol aircraft add-on or where I could maybe get one built for the simulator? It would be a huge advantage to have a feel for how the plane flies , before doing the initial real test flight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a 2004 model, it may fly but the chances are the gauges won't work.

Do you think it will work with FSX ? Also, is there a sticky some where that instructs on how to install an add-on airplane. I really don't have a clue how to install it to the simulator once I have downloaded it. Thanks Radarman. Your the greatest!! Always very helpful.

Work with FSX??? It probably will fly but as I said the gauges may not work.
Email the designer and ask him if he is going to upgrade it.
Here are installation instructions, in FSX the aircraft folder is now in the simobjects folder.

If you're up to it, you can borrow the guages from another compatable aircraft and modify the aircraft.cfg to call it. It is not a simple task.
