The plan is for demolition by disassembly rather than implosion to reduce the dust issue, and disturbance along the Embarcadero.
There are some who have a morbid sentimentality, and at least one has a financial interest, "The Three Stacks, and a Rock Brewery”. There is bigger money coming in turning the old power plant into a massive energy storage facility.

There is no stabilization in post. The technology in today’s GPS camera drones is amazing, and is just one reason that drones with good tech, including software, and camera hardware are not inexpensive. I am always amazed at how solid the flight can be, even in strong, gusty wind.

Fortunately, no. They provide some navigation/map tools in the software, that and I have always maintained a sense of locational awareness. That said, GPS drones such as my DJI Air 2S will set a home point at take off. In the event there is a low battery, or loss of RC controller signal the software will initiate an Auto Return To Home (RTH), and it will return to the home point and land. Also if you are totally lost, and have lost visual contact with the drone you can push/tap t6he RTH button on the controller to start a return to home. Best to learn how to navigate, and save the RTH for real emergencies.
