FWIW, a number of Mavics have a known issue where they lose altitude just hovering in place (among other various issues while hovering), and they don't gain it back, as a matter of fact they still read as being at the same altitude. My point being they all have quirks, at least Autel recognized it and made sure the drone would correct when stopped or slowed. Any drone moving forward is sacrificing vertical lift to do so, the faster the horizontal speed, the more vertical lift sacrificed to reach and maintain it. This is even more amplified with heavier drones. I guess the important thing, as someone already mentioned, is to be aware of your drones flight tendencies and make sure you compensate when needed.
