    Amazing, bleak and fun. That is the kind of short fiction I love.

  7. Wow…I haven’t heard the names Cloyd and Gidney in years!! Anyone know what the range is on these quadrocopters? How close were the people to where this moose is standing?

       At the end of the video, the copter flies back to the pilot and friends. At a guess, they were a few hundred yards away at most.
