Chainsaw starts and runs fine.
When the bar is pointed straight up the motor runs at full speed.

I had one do this long ago and it turned out to be a torn intake boot.  I dont know what your saw has though.

Whats it do when you roll it side to side running?

Looks like a intake block style. Check for loose carb etc.  Check for anything loose. Bottom pan bolts etc. Throttle being pulled by worn or broke av etc.
