The two, six-arm Cosson Hall BEQ housing buildings on Treasure Island, San Francisco, are abandoned and scheduled to be demolished.

My buddy Don Kehoe built new landing skids and a GoPro HD Hero camera mount for my Lama3 RC helicopter. I popped it off of the ground briefly to see whether the new rig is balanced, and it is! Can't wait to take it somewhere to take some aerials.
One issue to deal with: the GoPro is vibrating harmonically. I think we may need a larger mount with more foam to dampen it.
