I'm looking for a "warmliner". I thought the Speedy from FLY-FLY looks good but it might be a bit hot. I had a SIREN, crashed it on landing (too hot for me). Any suggestions ?

the Sprinter is a nice Warmliner, it has a bulky fuselage and does not get too fast. I have flown it successfully for years. It slows down nicely on landings with spoilers. Available at SoaringUSA

I have not flown a Siren myself. I can only share my own experience with my Sprinter.

Did you get a new plane?

Docile and warmliner don't really match up very well. These planes are ment to be flown faster than your typical TD glider and are more optimized for aerobatics than docile handling.

What is your goal with this warmliner?
