Engine shutting off pre-flight

Is this a 310R bug?

When I begin a flight, having created a new flight plan using the world map, one of the two engines sputters and then quits?? Once I restart the engine everything is fine, the engine runs and rpm increases when I use my Hotas One throttle— i make no other changes to my instrument settings.

Is my hotas causing the problem or am i missing some instrument setting?
