In gps mode, my top speed is 10mph, it should be around 22mph. In sports mode, it is normally reaching 40-45mph. Is there any configuration related to this That I should check ?

Obstacle avoidance reduces your speed by about half. You can turn it off when no obstacles are to be avoided.
It should be doing more than 10mph though.
Maybe handbrake is on.

Could very well be the handbrake. If that's not it then check the transmission fluid. Could be a little low.

Thanks guys. But, I didn’t know the drone had a handbreak, or neither transmission fluid. Do know how do you check that ?

Sports Mode would automatically disable your sensors anyway; are you suffering the same low speeds in Sports Mode as well?
