I will just fly them and concentrate on the other birds, i was suspicious of the hen when i got her i could tell she was slightly different.

These birds are very entertaining for sure and i enjoy them very much i dont no of any dolpaci breeders in the UK so i cant compare my birds to any others but i will be visiting Germany in the new year and hope to see some birds fly.
Ive just read this after my post ive copyed it from your article...
This can be described like a long and wide spiral dive. It will show its spin as a response to dropper while flying in low or medium altitudes or if flying in high altitudes with out any dropper by it self. If shown a dropper while flying high it will respond with a loose but rapid and very long spiral dive. Even at these altitudes, air ripping sound it creates can be heard easily. It is most characteristic dives are done in the "sarkma" (90 degrees to ground) style and always with its wings completely open.
This is exactly what i have seen the birds do wide spirrals all the way down and very fast with the woossshhing sounds. Ive seen the old cock do this away from the loft giving me a full side view its amazing to see. Its like he enjoys doing it for his own pleasure.
