One thing that bothers me about your throw is it looks like at the last minute you are not keeping your wrist down and maybe throwing anhyzer. One thing you are doing nearly perfectly is keeping the disc tight, close to your body.
I would add a slow walk up to facilitate easier body positioning. Dont add a runup yet.

Congratulations, I know it's been a lot of hard work. I hope it starts paying off on the course soon.
JR wrote:Very good! Applause! Things to improve are minor like getting more explosiveness with the twisting of the hip so that you'd be closer to facing the target as the disc leaves (and having a little more spin and a straighter flight) and eliminating the slight lowering of the arm in the follow through below the line the initial hyzer angle of the arm pull needs for a OAT free release. It's not many degrees but it is there and would help with consistency and penetrating gaps and tunnels straightening the flight. You should move to slow run ups and check with video if anything in your form changes. If there are no changes keep on adding power and videoing until you find the limits of your form vs power where the form, timing and accuracy drop. Staying at that level in field practice will in time correct your form. You're well on your way don't give up field practice now because you're on a roll. It didn't take long for you to get this far which is very nice already. There's no saying how far you could eventually get when your improvement is this fast. Sure there may be plateaus ahead but that happens to everyone. It's not something to get disappointed or frustrated about. Those usually lead to over trying which is one of the surest form killers.

Keep it up. Now that you're focused on the correct things, you'll get smoother and more efficient as you practice them. Maybe try to pick up the pace a little bit. Try to compact the things you think about before the throw, force yourself to be prepared to make a drive a couple seconds after you pick up the disc (like rapid fire putting) I think practicing that way sometimes will help you get smoother.
I noticed on the slideshow that your off arm is not down and tight to your body. That might slow down body rotation on a full throw.

It seems that you decelerate to the right pec (almost stopping) before accelerating at that point. Does anyone else see this? If so, is it good or would a slow acceleration leading to a quick one from the pec on be better? (This is most visible to me on the first throw)
