Interesting aircraft. Through an aperture behind the right seat, left rudder peddle one can see the structure of a forward bay!. Are those levers in the centre of the control yokes brake release levers?

It's the relative positions of the yokes which intrigue me - as in Lisinov.

Indeed, there is a bit of space forward of the cockpit. No idea about the other issues I'm afraid...

Yes, what are those levers on the yokes ?

And the rudder pedals don't appear to have brakes on them.

The forward bay area doesn't appear accessible from the cockpit (tight squeeze). Maybe an amphibian ?

The levers must be brake levers. Beneath the yokes are shrouded cables.

I reckon Sycamore has it. Have not found a complete image of the panel but have found an image of the Fokker S.13's Control Yoke with the brake lever. which is identical to that of the challenge aircraft. .
