A Quick Note on Line Of Sight & Spotting Issues
In addition to needing to register certain drones and possibly get a drone license yourself, there may be additional regulations you need to follow in order to be safe while racing.
For example, if you plan to wear goggles while you are flying your drone, then you may need a spotter because those goggles keep you from keeping your eyes on the drone itself. In essence, you can only see what the drone can “see” when you are wearing your goggles. There may be other “line of sight” issues to consider while racing as well.
