    Unlimiteds are starting to come up in the sport thread so I figured it was worth reviving this thread rather than starting another one.

    The unlimiteds still do not have a website or an official facebook page. I offered my services and didn't hear back...

    There was the idea of merging sport with the unlimited or making an unlimited-sport.
    My problem with that is you only gain the airplanes that are too slow for the unlimiteds and/or too many CI for Sport. The only planes I could think of in this category are T-28s and Gumbo.

    Sadly the builder (who had a cool thread on homebuiltairplanes.com which has since been deleted) passed away a few years ago.

    Looks really cool but scary at the same time. Vmc has to be way up there. Losing an engine around a pylon could be more than enough excitement.

    Can't see it having enough speed to compete.

    Anybody know what that wing is from?

    I don't see it being very fast either, doubt it would be above 400. Would have looked good flying next to Pond Racer. No idea where the wing came from.

    The only "fast" (ie 420mph+) twin configuration I like is a tandem push-pull like the Do-335. You get a twin engine without all the extra drag of a second nacelle. That does introduce a ton of other safety/weight factors, but that's for another thread.

    Since the turbo props get shot down could try to find someone to re-engine a Super Tucano or something...

    Also if the flat earther rocket dude can get sponsored, surely an unlimited team can land some sponsorship
