Nothing else remotely like that on the experimental market. I have to think all the people flying Baron's and twin Cessna's are ready to get something made this century.

Like everything else....easy to say, I'm sure super hard to do.

Merry Christmas!
I've been dreaming of a 4-place twin with conventional landing gear and retractable mains, counterrotating props, potentially with UL Power engines:

The "what the **** is that" notion of ramp appeal would be well-checked. As tandem RVs are to WWII fighters, this concept would be to early light bombers.

I don't think the market would support a kit of this type, but it could be a cool one-off or plans-built.
