Well, this is the reason for being a bit passive since fall 2016. A suicide minded fellow jumped down from a bridge and fell down in front of my motorcycle, cruising at 60mph, and I crashed.. I was away for 6 months but flew again with the great 701 in 2017! The 701 and all the great experience with this superb plane really gave me a reason to move ahead and I'm back again :)
