In the immediate foreground is the control column which is used to bank the glider and change its pitch. The white button on the top of the control column operates the radio microphone. Mounted on the control column is a green level to change the trim of the glider lever (to ease pitch control).
The yellow knob in front of the control column is to release the tow rope. Also just in front of the control column is a black knob with the white dot which is used to adjust the rudder pedals backwards and forwards depending on the height of the pilot. The right rudder pedal (black bar) can be seen at the front of the glider. The rudder yaws the glider.
A red yaw string that can be seen on the outside of the canopy which assists the pilot in flying at maximum efficiency. The yaw string is typically a piece of simple yarn taped to the canopy and will be pointing directly rearward during correctly coordinated turns. Any left/right deviation indicates a loss of glider performance and is typically corrected by turning the rudder.
The lever that is used to raise and lower the undercarriage is not visible in this picture but is directly below the blue air brake handle on the left side of the cockpit.
Instrument Panel Top Row - (from left to right): altimeter, airspeed indicator and a mechanical variometer which shows the rate of ascent or descent. Middle Row - compass, a combination GPS navigation computer / flight recorder / electric+audio variometer. The PDA is used as a moving map display with airport and turnpoint information. Bottom Row - next to the black knob with the white dot is the aviation radio (transceiver).
