JST connectors will not handle that current. If they are not the problem now, they will be soon. You need to replace them. Deans polarized 2 or 3 pin connectors are better suited for that application.

That motor/prop will probably draw 6 to 7 amps. Thats pretty close to the Pixie limit

I think most standard multimeters have a current function. Does yours ?
If it does, then read the current. Lets say it reads 7.5 amps. Then, Power (watts) = current times voltage, so, if your battery reads 7.5 volts times 7.5 amps =59.75 watts
