I know that the actual rotational speed of the disc has a lot to do with it's mid flight stability. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people I see throwing side arm don't really "flick" the disc quite as much as I do on power shots. If I try to flick it less, I do get extremely bad releases that wobble like crazy.
When you have good power but not good form the right disc will mask the symptoms but not cure the problem. From the video you posted (if the one shot we could see released was representative of how you typically throw) then you are not throwing flat. Oh btw, your description of discs flipping over proves you are not throwing flat. To reach your potential in both distance and control you must train yourself to be able to throw flat. When you throw flat you can vary your power without exacerbating flutter.
Forehands are much more difficult to control than backhands (smaller margin of error) so any flaw is exaggerated. In bad winds your only hope is to throw flat. So your primary goal should be to learn to throw flat. Perfectly dead nuts flat. Both your arm swing and your release angle needs to be flat. Which is possible with any disc in your bag with enough skill and practice.
For a big power arm you want to start with overstable discs, knowing that when you can control them you will to move to stable and then eventually understable discs too. I throw flippy putters forehand and control them.
My recommendation is to pick up a stack of discs to practice with. 3 Z Crushes, 3 Z Nukes and 3 Z Nukes OS's. All max weight. All different colors. Preferably from different runs. The Nukes will be hardest to control but eventually the discs you want for distance (once you learn to control them). The Crushes will likely be the easiest to control but give the least distance (and be the easiest to dial back for shorter shots).
The OS's will probably give you the best distance at first and should be able to handle all the power and flutter you will give them and not flip over.
Why different runs and colors? Because you want variance between the discs just like you need to vary shots on the course. The variances won't be great but as you develop control and learn the discs you will find how useful those variances are. Take them to the field on calm air days to learn the most and fastest. Don't worry about distances. Try to hit a line and throw flat.
