Live video goes from good to bad for no reason

Hi All,
I'm relatively new to the Mavic Pro, it's my 4th drone after buying several cheaper toy drones like Hubsan and Bugs3, etc. Having live video problems (SD video is fine). After going through several camera settings and reading several posts, I cannot figure out why the live video starts out good and quickly goes bad - see two screenshots from my iPad mini 4 for below.

Maybe it's heat related, but it happens even before the fan comes on, just sitting on my desk pointed out the window - takes maybe a minute or two to happen.

Anyone seen this kind of problem? Must be something known. Looks like the video bandwidth just throttles way back and the bits per pixel becomes super low.

Thanks for anyones assistance.
