Are you using Deans? Might want to check your connectors for corrosion. Also check the voltage before your connector and after to see if there is a difference.

Western Robotics makes several Hercules BEC’s so I’m not sure exactly the one you have. The one that I have has 4 voltage options and one of them is 5.3v so you may have the incorrect voltage selected.

Check your voltage meter against another one.

I had a friend who got one that was labeled incorrectly, try setting it to another voltage and see what happens?
