Makes sense - I think when recommending beginner discs it's important to consider what kind of beginner we're talking about. I took one buddy out with a classic setup of a few putters to try, a DX teebird, a Z buzzz, etc. He's a naturally athletic, lanky guy who has thrown a lot of frisbees, and was keeping up with me off the bat.

On the other hand, if you're taking folks out who are only tangentially interested in the sport or are really just humoring you giving it a try, it's important to put something in their hand that flies straight DESPITE their (lack of) throwing form. Light weight, comfortable, flippy. Not a Z Buzzz.

I would actually look at a driver that you can range and use for FH. Adds a variety to uses and can act as an understable compliment.
