I've tried the 2.4 release from macflightgear, but I've deleted it after a few tries. Terrasync did not seem to work and it crashed all the time.
But this is just from a few tries tough. Maybe I'll test it an other time when I have.. the time. Sorry

Will be nice when you find the time to check. Anyway, there will be a lot of time left to check it for Lion, but many thanks in advance :)

Just to make it clear for others ...
1) FGx is not macflightgear
2) There is no official FlightGear 2.4 "release" yet, just release candidates (official releases will come around mid/end of august), and also FGx for OSX has only a "preview" of FlightGear 2.4 included at the moment
3) terrasync, "standalone" or new built-in libs work well with FGx and FlightGear at the moment (and to be honest, I think it will work very well also with next official macflightgear release)

Hi Mitchell
This is the FGx forum and I ask here to test FGx. When you want to test macflightgear and want to report bugs of macflightgear or FlightGear itself, helping to improve the official release, please post in the macflightgear forum and/or read this post here:

I really like the GUI. It's very useful. But, when I click on start, nothing happens and it says: settings loaded. This could be the problem with OSX Lion... Where can I find the command line for that problem?

*edit* Sorry for posting this on the forum, I should have posted it on the bug tracker
