The Mavic air does this all the time for me and it's quite disturbing.  In this video all I did was do a right stick pan, and suddently the whole craft just dips to the left. This only happens for  a second, but again it does this all the time, and usually in the first few minutes of the flight.  Any Ideas?

Hi. I am sorry that you are having this experience on your DJI Mavic Air. May I know if the Drone had a crash or a hard landing before?

Never had a crash or hard landing. It's in perfect shape.  I'll also add that there was a bit of wind but only about 5mph.

Here is the first one that I posted above and then another that I had back on July 5th.

Were you in sport mode when when you panned?
The commands in sport mode are much more pronounced.

I was thinking the same b/c I get that kind of FPV wing-mode movement in S-mode but steady as can be in GPS mode.

My very first Mavic Air also had this issue due to gimbal malfunction, every time i pan, tilt up or down while landing or taking off, it shaked. So i suggest that you should send for a check.

UPDATE: I flew this several times after without an issue -- I started out in a VERY wooded area on both occasions, and I don't think I let it get a good GPS lock.  Watch the Satellite count!!

That is a rookie mistake, always have enough satellites before take off! glad you figured it out.
