Keep practicing that.
Flutter really doesn’t mean lack of spin. Flutter means some form of off-axis torque being put onto the disc. Zero OAT really doesn’t exist, it’s just a matter of minimizing it to the point where it doesn’t affect the flight.

Yes. My guess is that the "spin fast" advice comes from noting that slower spin rates can mean even a slight wobble won't stabilize. A fast spin can overcome some initial sloppy OAT.

I've tried a bunch of things just tossing a disc up in the air a few feet above me, and sometimes I can get a dead flat release even with low spin. I've noticed that having my wrist cocked back more than normal (that is, adding a little extra beyond just the disc weight) seems to help. I also get some improvement from pinching my thumb more toward the edge than into the flight plate. But nothing's a 100% fix, or even 75% yet.

Looking forward to some (but not too much!) fieldwork once weather improves. I'll focus on feeling lag, leading with elbow (uncomfortable with my surgically affected shoulder), and isolating the right grip and release to stop the stupid OAT.
