Default is there something wrong with disco?

disco my 2nd budgie is only 1 year old, when i got disco trained enough i let her out of the cage to fly but she flew into walls and i was scared she would get very hurt by that. so i ended up cutting the tips of her flight feathers and i did that every 1 or 2 months, but few months in i decided to stop and she now has enough flight feathers to fly a little further but she just falls to the floor even though she flaps her wings. is this from the clipping or is this something shes stuck with?

Welcome to the forums!

Due to the lack of exercise your Disco may not have her flight muscles developed enough for a good flight.

Does she still bumps into walls or other objects when flying or is she not even able to take off?

A photo showing her wings could also be helpful so that we can see if she has all flight feathers in place or not.

I agree with aluz.
It sounds as though Disco's muscles may not be strong enough to support her.

Does she ever hold onto a perch in her cage and flap her wings rapidly?

Please do post a photo.
