Vertical vs. Horizontal for Turkey- All sorts of Questions

Do I use the vertical roaster? If yes- then the which one sitting turkey or vertical roaster
Do I use the horizontal roaster? If yes, then is the normal V rack in a cheap tin ok? Or do I need a real pan? 

Which one is best to use the drippings for gravy?

    Another option-Drip pan air gapped on the platesetter and then spatchcock the turkey.  Drop it on the cooking grate/grid ( I have no idea of the correct term) til done.  Takes care of the vertical vs horizontal question although in the end it is a horizontal cook w/o the need for a roaster pan.  FWIW-
