Hello people of the forums!  I understand the way orientation in the way as wherever the camera is pointing that's where it'll go. Straight to the point, when I'm full throttling my camera is off about 10 degrees in either direction randomly. Sometimes it's straight. Is this the drone compensating for crosswinds in the same manner airplanes do when landing in a crosswind?

It is  possibility if it's due to aggressive flying. Do you happen to have any sample video of this?

I've had mine seem to be at a slight angle when it's trying to fly straight ahead but there's a strong wind coming in at an angle. Sounds a lot like what you're describing. You wish you turn the camera slightly but then you wouldn't have proper orientation. Also some of the videos of big jets coming in to land at some of the angles they do is pretty wicked, I believe they call it "Crab walking".

It's kind of hard to tell whether it's camera drift or if the actually the aircraft that's doing the drifting. If it's the latter, you could be incurring some interference due to being relatively close to those power lines.
