You're close but you could get some help to accuracy and D from looser hip action that also twists faster. At times especially with approaches you don't turn fast enough toward the target and you have to compensate with the arm. It isn't helped by differing reach back positions that depending on the timing and amount of hip twist and leg pivot lead to spraying of the disc. Which is a result of the arm moving on different lines. You should concentrate on moving the arm in a straight line. You can train this by moving in slow motion and seeing if your hip twist allows unimpeded arm motion in a straight line. Close to the chest. You can bring the disc closer to the chest to ahve a tighter angle at the elbow before it chops open which increases snap and speed on the disc. The same benefits come from extending the elbow about 4-5" farther toward the target before turning to face the target. You have good body control in the arm power generation and quickness. You'd get even better results when you can start the quick arm pull later. That is after the disc passes the right pec. Here again slow motion training helps.
I suggest sneaking at slow speed, planting then starting to add speed to turning toward the target at 50 % power and really yanking late in the throw. All the while maintaining eye contact to the target for added accuracy. The angle that the toe points at might need to lessen (be closer to the target) so that you don't loose eye contact.
Try to focus on a point far away through which you want the disc to fly without turning and fade. That should help with accuracy. If you miss try to remember if your hips were tight, the muscles bulged or slowly turning and were you facing the target and was the arm pull linear or coming from right to left as some of your throws were. That works for one former world record holder but as a golf placement technique it's overly complex and insecure. If any of the symptoms show up try to warm up by quickly turning with the hips to max left then right and back a couple of times and on the last left to right motion try to twist as fast as possible pivoting with a full follow through. And see if the next throw is more fluid. You should try to concentrate on the feeling of fluidity and ease on the next throw trying to maintain loose torso muscles until the disc passes the right pec. Never mind the power generation and accuracy. Once this becomes natural you can move on to finer things. There's no point when the basics aren't just right.
I think you'll be throwing far rather soon because you are close to great form and the tweaks aren't too major. And you already are quick and powerful with the arm. A little help from the legs by bending down 4" by adding knee angle and pushing harder and adding oomph to the hip twist will transform how your arm feels and accelerates once you get the earlier parts firing on all cylinders. I'd like to see more videos from you and hear how far you throw once you change these things. I expect some serious D from you. You've got so much good going for you already. Seeing Dan play can't hurt either
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
