Wimpy arm, massive headwinds

I have a champ tbird that's pretty over stable and a champ fire bird. The fbird is way over stable fore me , but get thumber duty and headwind shots I need a lot of fade in. I was plying in some wind recently, maybe 15 mph or so, and felt the need for the fire bird. I gave it a pull , and it started to turn on me but came back like you know an FB will. Good hang time and flight, but it didn't get any distance. When it went into the fade , it actually flew back a little. I don't like to carry stuff for just one situation, but it seems something too fast and over stable for me would be the solution. Or is there some other trick I am not aware of?

It's going backwards on you because you are throwing with the nose up. As soon as the disc starts to fade and show more of the belly to the wind, the wind will act on it by lifting it up and blowing it back.

Work on getting the nose down during the throw.

I don't know why I didn't think of that....... I do struggle with nose up issues at times
