Two things really jump out with this. Your weight is waaaay back. Slow down a bunch and take a much smaller final step. Pull later so your momentum from the runup carries you forward, instead of your arm pulling you backwards.

Your footwork looks off too. You hardly get the first full step down, it looks like your about to fall over. You can see your leg get really limp, i'm not sure how you keep yourself up. I think slowing down and taking smaller steps will help that as well. Once you get your balance together and slow down your steps, post another video. Its going to change things alot.

Welcome.

For getting the weight forward try to shorten the final step by at least a foot. Bending the right knee helps too and it's gonna protect you from leg injuries that are bound to occur if you keep the knee straight. If you pick the left leg up prior to the disc leaving the fingers kick it to the rights of the right leg. Or just keep it down on the ground until after the disc ripped out. Try to twist harder right and farther with the hips and turning the shoulders even more in relation to the hips. Don't keep the left hand on the disc please. You can reach back farther for more distance at the cost of reduced accuracy and repeatability. The elbow could be a few inches closer to the target prior to straightening. Overall it looks promising and you're well on your way. With these changes you should become fairly accurate.
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.
