Are you absolutely sure you are not pushing the stick slightly to one side.  I find I have a tendency of pushing the stick slightly to the left when I am commanding full speed ahead.  Not as much as your first video, but still there.  Took a little to realize that I was doing it.  You can check your DAT files to confirm if you are doing it.

Are you using the same controller-the same cell phone for both?

I'd also calibrate the compass given your scenario but be sure to do it away from any heavy metal objects and magnetism. I suggest you change the props with a set of new ones too as drifting is not normal for these drones.

Calibrate the RC(s).  Afterwards make sure you are pushing the stick straight forward.   It's easy to be a little off which can give a false sense of tracking to one side.

I used different controller for each one! I calibrated IMU, gimbal, and when i calibrate compass, i stay in open wide area, just next to small tree because that is only space away from magnetic! I changed to a set of master aircrew propeller too, nothing help!
- Beside, my zoom need to adjust every time i turn because the gimbal tilt as you see in the video (i calibrated the gimbal)! Man, maybe i am such an unlucky people

I recommend to use different cellphone or try to connect your cell to bottom controller usb via long cable and keep mobile more far from controller and do test flight. Those sticks are magnetic ones and some mobile devices are interfering with them.

Or you can simply try do some short flight without cell phone at all only with controller.

Hello there lordofwolf. I am sorry for the trouble this has caused and thank you for reaching out. Before this issue happened was there a hard landing or a crash that happened on both ot your DJI Drones and may we know what is the model of the mobile device you are using please? In addition can you please try to refresh the firmware of both DJI drone and calibrate the remote controllers as well for us to be able to islotae the said issue. For reference I will post a DJI tutorial video on how to calibrate the DJI Mavic Remote Controller. Thank you.

I would swap the props and see if this issue moves to the other drone.  It doesn't take much for the props to loose their shape slightly.

Calibrate the gimbal. It is possible that the camera is off center which looks just like it does not fly straight. Happened to me several times already especially if I power up the M2P on my hand and take off from my hand.

Right, this is what helped in my case. I couldnt understand why it slides to the right when the stick is forward, especially it was annoying when trying to fly straight trail between the trees.
After reading this recommendation I took a close look at the camera - its axis was not the same as drone axis, i.e. looking a bit left, just couple degrees but visible even with eyes.
so I calibrated the gimbal, there is Roll and Yaw, Yaw calibration to the right for 2 degrees has set the axis looking into the same direction.
