Taken underneath, this shot shows the rear control rod linkage to the aileron wires. It also offers a good view of the suspension and undercarriage linkage.

 

Aileron rod linkage on underside of lower port wing.

 

A shot of the cabane struts from the starboard side. Note canopy to wing bracing and fuselage to wing bracing.

 

Here's a late evening shot of the port side at the cabane struts. Seen are the Venturi tube and the fuel line from the upper wing. The rod from the fuselage to the fuel cock may be some method of controlling the flow of petrol. I have no idea? Also seen is the landing rod attachment to the upper wing.

This picture shows the rudder and elevator control wires.

 

A good view of the rudder and elevator wire linkages. A good look at the tailwheel also.

This view shows the location of the landing/flying rod attachments to the lower port wing.

And here's a look at the attachments on the upper port wing.

Rear cockpit from the port side.

This view shows the rudder linkage through a slot in the forward cockpit. Also seen are the flying rod ties to the lower wing. Note bladed rods.

This is the only indication of air speed you'll get on the DH-82.
