Suggestion from Ender89
The stick drift is usually caused by plastic dust (from the thumbstick wearing against the shell of the controller) gumming up the analog mechanism that tracks the position of the thumbstick. I get it occasionally on my left thumbstick, and I fix it by prizing off the plastic piece on side of the controller grip, exposing the space between the circuit board and the shell, and blasting some canned air at the mechanism to clean it.
