Could be one of two things... could be the ESC is reading your battery as an 8-cell instead of a 7-cell, and applying the LVC once the load at half throttle brings the voltage down.

Or, it could be your battery is pooched, and the voltage sags so much the LVC kicks in.

Try cycling the battery a few times - drain it right down and give it a full charge. Can you change the charge rate on your charger? Set it as low as you can, to get a slow charge - it may be getting a false peak off your battery and not charging it completely.
Eagles may soar,
but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
