Has anyone built a Bad Dog 98 from Wildman yet? I was just looking for specs like length and weight, curious how it went together?
I did a couple of searches but couldn't find anything.

Thanks,
Powderman

It's about a spittin' image of Madcow/RW Mad Dog which I built years ago & it's a great flyer. Mine is 87" & weighs 12.8 lbs.

My hope is that it or the Demon 98 will be on sale soon...HINT...HINT.

Yeah, I'm lovin' the nosecone, but 54mm MMT on a 4" rocket? I'd be picking up some bigger stuff to upgrade it.

I have build WM, and I have built a MD, but not WM's MD. I substituted a 75mm mount, added a 4th fin, fixed the coupler to the main body tube, mounted a motor-retainer/mount bulkhead in the coupler, and used the NC coupler as the av bay with the main chute up in the nose. This allows motors to 48" long. Worked wonderfully as an L3 project and will fly with some large KNER motor in the near future.

For someone new to the hobby (me), there are many more 54mm DMS motors available than 75mm. Will I get big hardware someday? Probably. Would I rather spend money on rockets than motor hardware and get into the air right now? Yes.

I can verify the L1000 discussion.. granted I did lengthen my booster by 12 inches, but it does fit and the 4" MD does very well on it.. pictures attached. Mine will be on a 75mm M at AF next year.

Great choice with this kit, it's a sporty performer and it has a great look to it.

All the credit for these pictures goes to the one, the only, Harry Spears.

This here...^^
But the 2 grain 75's from both AT and CTI are cheaper than than the AT and CTI 6 grain and 6 XL grain 54mm motors. Maybe a few less choices, but not by much and \$20.00 a load saved is well, more fun in the long run...
Depends if you have the 75 hardware if its cheaper

Well, there is that small caveat... But since I do...

I didn't even see this was you Adrian. You probably have more hardwear than WM

Well, there was that time that he borrowed a 54/1706 case from me...
But not anymore. He's got a LOT of hardware now. He's just short on some 75mm stuff.

I remember that, he needed some 75mm closures to get the Mega Wildman up. That was an event!

But I really shouldn't be involved in a discussion about motor hardware.... Then there is Sharon to consider, she is worse than me about that stuff, especially snap ring hardware.

Glad to year some of hardwear shortage is over

Anyone from this thread have a rocksim / openrocket file created for the WM Bad Dog 98?

I picked one up at black friday with the 54mm retainer and was hoping someone had done most of the drag and drop already so i could save some time

I have one that is setup for mine, the booster is 12” longer otherwise it’s the same. Happy to give it to you, send me your email.
