Oh god yes, this is what has become known as the dreaded "n00b hyzer." Everybody struggles with this pretty much b/c it's a natural motion. Go find the Dan Beto video (in the technique sticky) on throwing from the hit back and repeat the first steps (correctly) ad nauseum.

Do what BrotherD says. A little work and next thing you know, you'll wonder when it exactly went away.

Oh yeah, just don't overcompensate by swinging your arm down and rolling your wrist up either. That's why all of us are telling you to ditch the Beast and similar fast drivers b/c you'll end up doing that to make them go straight, crapping up your form in the process.

what's a fair trade for the beast if I were to put up in the marketplace?

Pretty much anythinig in same plastic, same condition.
It's not anything new, fancy or hard to find... almost a staple.
Just don't trade Champ or Star for DX straight up... you'd be losing value.

All of these are as common as a Beast. Same plastic, same condition = fair trade:
Champ or Star Beast for a Z or ESP Buzz is fair.
Pro Beast for Elite X Buzz = fair.
DX Beast for D Buzzz = fair.

If I had to recommend a disc that's easy to throw and does exactly what you expect it to... Buzzz baby. A Buzzz will hold the line you put it on. Comet's a good disc (I use both of them), but the Buzzz is more versatile and it will serve you well for years to come - you won't "outgrow" it. Great disc to start learning the game with.

Once you get form down, and want a driver, you might want to reach for a Leopard.

If you really care about saving money, DO NOT get hooked by the: latest, gretest, fastest, what everyone's talking about disc(s)... trust me, I spent waayyy too much on plastic when I started, thinking "surely this disc will make me a better player." Every disc has it's use, but a lot of them aren't well suited to everyone, or even most players, so take all the "the ____ is the greatest disc ever" lines with a grain of salt.

Listen to Bro D and Techno, and search for threads for n00bs... and if you see something from Garublador, read it twice and take notes. Check out this post for my perspective on being able to throw a complete game with just a few discs.

Alright thanks guys. I think i will hold on to the beast but just set it aside for now. Looks like buzzz and comet or buzzz and leopard will be my next discs. Do you guys think it's worth throwing forehand right now? Or just master backhand?
