I don't care. I only fly in LOS to takeoff/land. This "drone must be in LOS" rule is plain stupid and impossible to respect. If I wanted to take pictures within LOS I'd take a damn kite and glue a gopro to it.

Like MiniPalourde said (but I really do fly mostly within line of sight), it is nearly impossible to stay LOS.  Most of the time, I can't find mine in the sky up 200 feet when it is over about 100 yards away.  Impossible to stay LOS.  I fly within about half a mile of my house and fly the screen, paying attention to the known clearances of the neighborhood.

I wouldn't say I don't care if it's in LOS... I do care but it's not always practical. I just try to be smart about flying.

Either my wife or grand-son (sometimes both) always goes with me, so someone has their peepers on it all the time.
