this is plenty to work on and I think will get me moving in the right direction.
one thing I am REALLY struggling with is getting more racquet drop. I don't know if its a lack of flexibility, but it's really tough for me to get my elbow up high. I may just have to accept this isn't too fixable?
Sorry for contributing to the derailment.
As for racquet drop, don't concern yourself with getting your elbow high.
A better image to keep in mind might be leading with the elbow; that would put your arm/racquet in a better position leading up to contact. At this point, looking at your first videos frame by frame, what's really hindering your racquet drop is that the elbow isn't coming forward before the hand&racquet (I guess this is "waiter's tray"?).
Can't tell how relaxed you are, but stay as loose as you possibly can.
