GoPro Hero 3 Black Inflight Charging Problem

I just recently purchased a 5v 5a UBEC to power my GoPro while flying. The problem is it outputs 5.4v when connected to a 4s battery. Regular usb is 5v +/- .25v, so the UBEC is running .15v higher than usb specifications. Will this increase in volts harm my GoPro? I've read that it may be sensitive to high voltage and lockup but will it cause damage? Does anyone have experience with a similar situation? I don't want to fry my camera. Thanks for any help.
