Uv mapping curved shape

Hi I have a donut shaped letter I'm trying to run uv's along.

What is the best way to get the texture to run along it, following the shape of the curve.

Like the texture running along a banana..

Look for UVing cables tutorials....your U shape is a bit heavy though you might experience some lag.

Ya, there's a method in the old may uv editor which uses Unitize function

But I don't see this in new may 2018...

Also take a look at the Bonus Tools, they have an Auto Unwrap mode (at least in 2016, I don't know about the newer versions) where you just define where the seams will be and it does the rest, it's perfect for cylindrical shapes.
