Nope. Turns out 9 years of spinning on my front leg is really hard to unlearn. Spent most of the rest of the time trying different motions, pretending I was throwing a bench, swinging a bat left handed, and just spraying discs everywhere and getting really frustrated.

I think I finally made some progress at the end...tried to slow down and go for a pulling a rope/lawnmower feel while keeping my arm loose. The motion still feels completely foreign but I was getting a more consistent hit without crashing my weight forward and spinning on my front leg. Is this closer to what Im looking for?

You're coming over the top, especially the first one. Grab something understable and use a pendulum motion and let your front shoulder hang and come through underneath your body.

Anyway, I personally would scrap the one leg for now and throw from a standstill so that you can get the feel of using your legs. In fact, I would do the windmill drill (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W75XqL2iq1s&t=51s) in order to feel the acceleration, gravity and pumping the swing with your legs:

Did the windmill drill the past couple of days. I think Im finally understanding the brace conceptually, but getting it to translate into my swing is really difficult. Im thinking about my femur as a pole that my torso just rotates around. Previously I was using my knee as that pole. Going to take a lot more work...

I think the second throw here is a lot better than the first. Need to focus on one thing at a time cause my swing is so broken. Im thinking the first thing I really need to figure out is this front brace so I stop twisting around on my knee

You are definitely getting the "slinging" action better which the windmill will really help with, however you are going over the top pretty severely which means your upper body is not staying behind the brace. All the pressure is going to your knee because your balance is going too far forward. It's going to feel weird but you have to stay more upright and planted and trust that the disc will eject towards the target.

Try the perpetual motion drill and that will teach you how to stay balanced so that you could reverse the swing if going slow enough.

Ive been doing swing drills with a hammer non stop. I seem to have developed two different types of swings. The first is the battering ram/elephant walk swing, which actually feels more powerful to me, but I cant tell if my mechanics are correct. The second is the traditional golf swing. Both feel way different than how I had been swinging.
Here is a video of both, elephant walk first...
