Default Help rebuilding RHBH please!

I recently realized that I badly needed to get my RHBH form in check. Badly. So, I started over completely and am trying to establish proper form. I had the chance to get a decent example of my standstill throw and my step up throw.

https://youtu.be/FJPAQZeUZlw

Immediately I saw several things I think are wrong. To me it looks like I'm:
Not holding the disc level at begining of my pull in the step up throw.
Not leading with my hips.
Not bringing my left arm in.
Not spinning on my heel in the standstill throw.

Also, I'm wondering:
Is my front knee bent too much?
Is my x-step too wide?
Are my left arm and leg out too far?

I'm trying to reform completely so all advice is appreciated! Thanks!

Yes to everything for the most part. You are setting up your standstill in a reverse pivot with the front knee bent and rear knee straight except you don't brace your front side or knee to reverse during the swing, start the setup with both knees flexed somewhat into ready athletic position. Your front knee needs to stiffen/straighten some during the swing to brace behind the front ankle(Your front knee collapses posture way past your ankle). You are turned 180 from the target and leading/leaning your shoulders over your hips so your spine is pointed at the target-backwards and your rear leg/knee is straight, so from your rear toes to your head is a straight line leaning toward the target - this is before the swing has even begun yet, you are just setting up in this out-of-balance position that gives you no chance to make a balanced swing and lead from your hips ahead of the shoulders to use the ground efficiently.

Ohhh... Okay. So, both knees flexed, front knee behind front ankle and lead with hips. I understand what your saying about setting up out of balance from the beginning. Thank you!
