Check the pitch curve in your transmitter. You might have accidentally set negative pitch on one of the mid points, just as you come above hover.

I had a problem with a lack of headspeed, would reach hover thn start to die. Happened that my one way bearing died. After a main gear, bearing etc replace and lube it was fine.

Happened outta the blue, check out yours to see how easy it spins.
