2- The Low voltage action: When low voltage is detected (see conditions above), the reaction of the ESC can be set to MOTOR CUT (this is probably what you have now) or to REDUCED POWER (this is what you should have).

Most ESC have these two settings available but each brand name and model have their own list of options and programmation mode. You will need to do a search on the web for how to program your specific ESC (brand and model).
Hi Raymond,
Quick update...HH agreed that the ESC was at fault and sent me a free replacement. It took awhile to arrive, but it was worth the wait. The new ESC has fixed the issue and I have flown several flights now without any throttle or control interruptions. Thanks for your suggestions. Recent picture attached.
