It's nothing to do with modulation. The receivers you are using are DSM2 so the Tx must be binding in the correct DSM2 modulation, otherwise it would never have worked at all.

If it happened on two planes at the same time then that's pointing to a Tx fault.

Can you get a loan of another Tx to test?

The less sweep you use the more trim/CG sensitive it will be. Also with a decent amount of sweep you dont need to use a reflexed airfoil, you can use twist (washout) instead which is more efficient.
