Good analogy. Thats how I learned how to pronate. I was in the midst of pronating, then at last minute I turn the racket with my forearm hitting it squarely. It all happens extremely quickly, even in slow motion. Hence the power.

Ok, here's my take on this. The badminton overhead stroke is very fast - faster than what your senses can feed back to you. Therefore, the stroke cannot be controlled via mid-stroke feedback, but instead you have to preprogram the entire movement at the start (feed forward control) and then review what happened afterwards. This is known as a ballistic movement.
So, instead of focusing on the path of your backswing, think about your initial conditions for your swing:
1. your position (arm position, grip, etc)
2. initial movement (how much and how quickly you rotate your body)
Keep your arm relaxed (this is very important, and sometimes very difficult) and see where your swing goes. Adjust 1 or 2 and see how it changes the stroke. After a while, you should get a feel for what feels more fluid.

That's very good advice from stumblingfeet. I particularly like this:
