My setup is: Brain 2, Hobbywing Platinum 60A (Linear Throttle mode), Futaba T16IZ (radio) and R7003SB (RX). Everything connected in accordance with MSH recommendations. This setup, including telemetry (selected sensor is CASTLE-TL0), works correctly. Brain controls the operation of the ESC by properly setting the revolutions to the selected speeds. I have all the telemetry readings provided by ESC on the radio. The problem is that each time the battery is connected, Brain goes through the initialization procedure (including several moves of the swash plate), when FBL unit is ready to start and I release throttle hold switch it causes swash plate MOVES AGAIN exactly the same as in the initialization procedure. Unfortunately, despite switching to normal mode, the engine does not start. This situation repeats itself twice (I release the throttle hold, the swash plate moves, the engine does not start, I turn on the throttle hold). Finally, on the third attempt to release the throttle hold, the swash plate stops behaving as in the initialization procedure and the motor starts to spin the rotor properly. After disconnecting the telemetry cable from the ESC, the problem disappears. I mean, after connecting the battery, Brain performs the initialization procedure and after releasing the throttle hold, the engine starts normally. Have any of you had similar problems? Is the only way to make Brain behave normally is to give up the telemetry option? Thanks for help.

Make a support request without having submitted the necessary files as explained here:
https://www.msh-electronics.com/faq/#Q01
Or here:
https://www.msh-electronics.com/forum/support/when-you-ask-for-support/
makes it impossible to give you a certain, safe, and clear answer right away.

It appears, however, that you are either trying to start the motor with a battery that is not fully charged or that you have entered the wrong number of cells in the "Min V to go (cell numbers)" parameter on panel 12 of the Wizard.
We suggest that you go with the mouse over the "Min V to go (cell numbers)" label and carefully read the text that appears in the relevant balloon.
