    It could be a software glitch. Hook it up to a computer and reinstall the update software it will ask do you want to reinstall say yes and see if this solves your issue.

    My phantom 2 was drifting even in gps and I reinstalled the software now it's ok and stable.

    Hope this helps you.

    Hook up your phantom back to the computer and check your battery health!

    I just had a scary flight the other day. My one battery only lasted 5 minutes I looked down on the screen it said I still had 38% left took it up about 50 feet then it came back down fast!! I got it to land in the grass thankfully but the battery went from 38% to 5% in just going up. Smh

    Hooked it up to the computer and it was uneven battery levels in voltage. It had a bad cell in the battery.

    A few things...
    Is it cold up there? Cold temps will drop the voltage on the batter and hence force land.

    Another is that the Phantoms have an operational ceiling of 5000/6000 metres. Maybe it knows how high it is.

    I'd guess the air is just so thin it is too much for the battery and motors.
    Even full size helicopters have difficulty at high altitude.
    If it flies normally lower down that must be the reason surely
