Shame we can't pull the video and run it through some real analysis software! Quick impressions are mostly positive with the hands and club moving on a nice plane throughout the swing. As previously mentioned there is loss of height on the backswing and yes this will lead to a small lift on the downswing. It appears that the loss of height is due to some straightening in the right leg leading to a bit of a tilt in the hips therefore dropping the left side dropping a little lower than ideal hence the loss of height.

You look fairly tall judging by the shoulder plane and in my humble opinion have a stance that is too narrow to support your action, adding a little width would help to maintain the softness in you right knee resisting your great rotation in your backswing....(if i was being picky i'd say your clubface is a touch shut on your downswing but would like to see it more clearly on more appropriate software!)

Anyway...what have you been working on?

Ok, here is what I have been working on...

 

1. Posture, I trying to stand a little bit taller. Also widen my stance a bit.

2. Left knee flexes out to much, or you can say right knee gets straight. Trying to work on this, don't really know how to though?

3. Grip pressure is way to much. I think this is what is causing a little bit of a closed club face.

4. I feel I am bringing it a touch to the inside, but not that big of a deal.

5. Shorting my swing up with short irons. That is a 7 iron in the video, so I am trying to may a more compact swing

 

So yall mentioned everything I am working on, anyone have any drills they use for this stuff. That would be a big help. Keep the input coming, everything was great.

in the past few months ive become obssessed with finding the easiest and repeatable swing i can make. You are pretty close to what my swing looks like and i struggled with the same thing you are. Id like to say tho that i am not an expert of have any training but the fact that i noticed your small flaws might loan me a little bit of credibility however as with all advice you should only take what will work for you i have been slow learing this fact. So here goes

 

First try and keep your arms to the side of the shaft which you do pretty well but it looks like you may roll your arms a little but your almost there. also it helps me to think of keeping my right arm in front of my body as far as i can and never let it get outside your right hip. It wont if you do both of these.

 

Posture looks pretty solid so whatever you are doing looks like its working.

 

As far as you raising up basically what you are doing is moving your right knee towards the groud in order to make the weight shift. Try moving it toward your right knee without dropping it any and maybe thing about taking a little flex out of your knees. I did this and it helps me stay flat through the swing. This was my major fault as well and it worked for me.

 

Looks like you keep your elbow near your hip on the downswing and your left arm close to your body. This is what you want to do. I actually use my right elbow as kind of a trigger. When it gets to my hips i have to make the weight shift to my left amd turn through or my arms cant swing through. Kinda feels like my elbow moves with my hip.

 

I dont really do any drills they just dont work for me. I will concentrate on one area at a time at home swinging without a ball and when i feel i can do it fairly consistently then i try it on the range to see what the result is and if its favorable then i continue untill that part feels natural and i dont really notice that i do it anymore. Then on to the next thing. Its takes time to do it this way but i dont backslide any or i dont get one thing working then immediatly move to something else because when i do i tend to forget to do the other parts since i didnt practice them enough. So if its important to you to get stuff right then i think my method works pretty good but again everyone is different and you may be able to get it done more quickly with some other method so dont just listen to me. Not too many people will tell you that but i try to be honest and i always want my fellow golf paisan to do well. Looks great tho keep up the good work!
