    Mine did the same thing after 8 weeks old. In RTH mode and one of the props flew off and it crashed. Sent it back to DJI and was repaired after 10 weeks. They DID NOT give an explanation Now can't trust it

    Top of the list for just cut out (instant video and signal loss) is CSC or battery failed/disconnected.

    Check for CSC by replaying flight in GO App and looking at stick movements.

    Where you recording video? Did it instantly stop (this.may be difficult to determine looking at the file on SD card if it didnt finalise but you should have video on your device in the GO folder.

    Why would the video instantly stop if the OP did a CSC?

    I suggested looking at the GO app replay for CSC... instant video loss for indication of battery failure/connection issue.

    Hopefully the OP will take your advice re postimg Log file for extra clues.
