Are there 2 different size nanos, or did I read that wrong in the opening shot?

If you keep the nose down it will stay relatively straight and it stays in the air much longer than if I try to laser beam it.
I think this may be my issue, I try to throw it like my buzzz with a low laser beam. I'll air it out a bit with nose down and se how that works.

The same is true for all stable discs.

Throw them with good form, straight and true, and they'll fly the same way.
I'm not denying my form flaws and that OAT is most likely the issue, but for some reason I can throw my tangent a lot more consistently. I wouldn't say the axis ever turns and burns on me just ends right instead of straight or slight fade left of where I'm aiming.

Is there a certain domeyness or colour or weight that would tend to be slightly more stable? (Not blaming the disc,just curious)

flatter neutron are a very straight axis runs where the domey proton seem more stable and touchier compared to the newer runs IMO. My flat bubblegum pink axis is a lazer compared to uv FR proton with dome.

My least overstable Axis have been my flat as a board, orange eclipse Axis.

Most of mine have moderate dome and on an 80% power rip just go dead straight with a very mild fade at the end. Great hss.

The flat ones I've thrown that felt a little more understable had a touch of turn and a hair less fade. Instead of 0 hss like most Axis they are more like -.5. I have not seen any of these from the newest runs but there could still be some out there. Thrown flat and hard they will go to the right, but given a touch of hyzer and they are straight and controllable. These make great understable mids once beat up some.

My domiest Axis fly closer to a Buzz...straight with a moderate fade at the end. They just fade a bit later than a Buzz would, but sooner than a typical Axis.

My go to are max weight pink Neutrons with average dome. They have no high speed turn thrown at full power (380-400' avg).

You mentioned "wormburner" before. Turning a bit, is different than wormburner.

Either way, it sounds like you realize it's your form. Good luck in getting those intended flights our of your Axis.

Thanks for the run down Mike, I'll use this info when/if a buy another axis. Like I said the only one I have is a black N 175g and I have another black N 176g on it's way. Here is a pic of mine, I would consider this board flat, would you?
