a four-direction flight:
disc thrown hard with hyzer to the RIGHT.
the hyzer angle "bites" and pushes right to LEFT.
disc goes left, flattens, turns to the RIGHT
disc pans left to right and flexes back LEFT.

others have described three-direction flight.

A four-direction flight is exactly what I described. Throw with a steep hyzer to the right. Curves to the left until it sits up flat. Then, it turns past flat to the right. Then it tails to the left.

No, that's cool. I need to try that one.

What would the desired stability of a disc be to throw that kinda shot?

best: something originally stable beat to understable and in base plastic.

Traverse City, eh? Next time you play Hickory Hills, take a slightly worn DX Valkyrie (165-170g) to hole 19 and chuck it with a hyzer angle down the right side of that ski slope, then watch it fly damn near to the basket on a nice hyzer-flip line. The one time i played that course I made an eagle because it's so easy to throw it nearly 500' down that hill. The extreme downhill shots make it easier to hyzer-flip because the slope makes discs act less stable.

Something that is "true stable," beat in, and in base plastic.

Which type of disc is better for a hyzer flip, overstable , stable , or understable?

you need something understable enough to flatten/flip, but stable/overstable enough to fly predictably after the flatten/flip.
