That is caused by a voltage drop. This is usually in the setup og the speed control. Try to setup the speed control with soft cutoff if this is available. The other thing could be the battery. If the battery cannot handle the amps demanded by the motor prop combo, it will show a voltage drop and this will cause the speed control to shut down.

Only 4.8 volts? I am surprised that the speed control even worked at all. Going up to a more normal voltage for electric flight should take care of the problem.
