Really? I would think a flippy driver would pop up and even turn and that's what you would want. I do that with my DX Leo, only disc in the bag I can flip and use it to turn corners. Thats wrong? Are you saying I should be able to throw that on a hyzer line and it should stay?

Look up some videos of Barry Schultz, he pushes leopards out to 350'+ on all kinds of lines including pure hyzers. If you can do that, you'll have a lot more control when you do want a disc to flip up.

I'm trying something similar at the moment, trying to throw Tangent flat and straight without turning it over, which happens easily if I try to strong-arm it. I have beat dx teebird which I have tried to throw on a hyzer line, but it feels impossible...

Is it so that in order to keep the hyzer angle on a flippy disc, you should throw more upwards (and more hyzer accordingly) in addition to clean technique so it will rise instead of turn, or is it possible to throw a flippy driver or a putter flat and low and keep it from turning over?

Hyzer yes, which is a naturally higher release angle.
