I have no problem tremolo picking notes or power chords on the E string, but when I'm tremolo picking on the A string I often accidentally hit the e string with my pick (but never any problems with the D string)

i was wondering if there was something wrong with my technique, or the angle i hold the pick? I use Dunlop .38mm picks, and i tend to hold them on a slight angle rather than perpendicular to the strings

here's a video of me so you can see my technique

Wow, that's a mentally thin pick - you usually want something a fair bit heavier for accuracy when picking at speed. I personally wouldn't use anything less than 88mm, I usually use Dunlop 1.14mm Tortexes.

yeah i see your problem...what i do when i tremolo pick is...i place my hand on the guitar like if i would palm mute...but my palm doesnt touch the strings...

in this position your hand is more stable...and also try not to move too far away from the string with your pick...stay as close to the string as possible...

in your video i can see your hand moving up and down a "very long" way...

hope that helps at least a bit
