Interesting how a breed from a town known for its though guys ends up being:)

Scissoring is a favourite in the Mersin area. In Adana they are in the same page with you I think.
I also like both birds to be completely locked in.
That style also creates the most noise when they are coming down.

I got a mechanical dropper sent from a friend in Germany wich is also good but i broke 1 of the wings and i'm waiting on a replacement.
I have seen some of those mechanisms. Some attached to a drill.
Some guys make the wings out of Styrofoam plates cut in to the shape of a wing with hot-knife.
It seems to work well.
