Mavic 2 Pro stops at 5m above ground

Since a couple of days when I start my Mavic 2 Pro, it stops at 5m above ground and the voice says: 'Maximum altitude reached'. The maximum altitude is set at 100m, the problem is not there. After a couple of minutes maneuvering the drone it suddenly gets higher and the problem is solved. But sometimes it takes more than 10min. restarting the drone etc...etc...
Does somebody recognize the same problem? Many Thanks!

If you have a log...

I had the same thing happening to me earlier this week with a MA. Posted the log end the experts explained, that because of the environment (forrest, hight trees) there was no connection to GPS, so I started of at OPTI.
Then, as I raised the bird, the GPS contact was established and I could pull up higher. As soon as I got higher, the drone started drifting, I had to pull up full power and managed to avoid the trees befor I regained control. My lesson: Never take of in OPTI and continue flying when GPS comes in.

Could be that your log show some data like mine did.
