As the disc slows down, it becomes more overstable and it will fade left at the end of it's flight. As the disc beats in, it will fade left less.

Also as you gain more power/snap, the disc will fade less left since you will be able to get it up to and keep it at a faster speed.

If you don't release it flat and put snap on it, it'll go left after a bit of straight flight. You should work on, 1) getting a straight line on your pull through, 2) releasing flat and 3) increasing snap.

Are you sure it's not a left handed disc?

Any disc, even one with a -1 rating, will eventually fade back left if given enough time in the air. Increasing your snap will put more spin on the disc, which will make it stay on a flat line for longer. Very good players can throw discs that fly over 300' and still land completely flat, but it obviously takes a lot of practice.
